Word count SpeedGrader

Word count in SpeedGrader is wildly inaccurate.

I have two instances that are not a couple of words off but over a thousand words off. They are both files saved as PDF 1.7 files from MS Word but both with wholly inaccurate word counts.

Is this just me?

Hi Jed, I might suggest reporting this to Canvas Support so they can investigate it.

BUT -- one thought I have is that sometimes, even in Word docs or other files, there is code hidden it the background if text is copied and pasted from somewhere else.   Since the numbers are so wildly off, I would wonder if there are words that can't be seen (words that are in the coding in the background).
