Welcome to The Machine

The Machine analyzes word frequency in your text. The Machine works hard to protect your content. It never communicates with any server while working for you. Period. A few key concepts:
  • Word exclusion list -- These are words that won't be counted. The Machine has a few it already knows about and you can add your own.
  • Word count limit -- The Machine will only report on words that appear at least this many times.
  • Hotspots -- Anytime the Machine finds a word used more than 3 times in a small section of text it will let you know. Please note that if you mouse over the hotspot numbers a tooltip will popup showing word count locations for each occurrence.
This tool is licensed under the terms of the MIT license (fine print at bottom).
