A multilingual word counter and spoken word timer.

Must be:
    • Silent (Sits in the tray when not being used)
    • Called from shortcut keys outside of the software
    • Multilingual

The Problem To Be Solved:

I find myself always having to pay strict attention to word counts.  I need a utility that will be able to take clipboard content (text only), and output the word count and/or spoken word timer (how long it would take to speak that amount of text, including breathing time, at a typical spoken word speed).

I won't always want to have to manually paste text into Notepad++ or Word or whatever, in order to get a word count (sometimes I need to be able to select text blocks from documents such as PDFs), so having something to universally monitor my clipboard would be super useful.

The requirement for the utility to be multilingual is because a lot of what I am checking is in English and Italian.  So with that in mind, only being able to check the spoken time in English would become rather limiting for me.
