|Voyant Tools with texts from albums by Jay Z|
By Kenton Rambsy and Howard Rambsy II
Voyant Tools is a free, web-based, text analysis and visualization toolset created by Stéfan Sinclair, Geoffrey Rockwell, and their research team. Voyant enumerates words in a text or series of texts, categorizes the words, and also pinpoints word densities. In addition to calculating word usage, Voyant has several interfaces that represent quantitative information in data visualization formats.
So far, we have utilized Voyant Tools to identify word frequency in works by Frederick Douglass, Jay Z, short storiy writers, and poets.
