(Available in only Readability PLUS)
The Vocabulary Assessor can be used for either of two purposes: (1) to display and count the number of occurrences of each and every word in a document; or (2) to identify and count the number of occurrences of only those words potentially difficult for the intended readers of the document.
Word Lists (also referred to as “Vocabulary Lists”) are used when you wish to identify words in a document which are potentially difficult words for the intended readers. The Vocabulary Assessor can compare the contents of either one or two such Word Lists with each word in a document, identifying just those document words which do not match any words in the Word Lists. The unmatched words are identified as “potentially difficult” words.
