Using Voyant for text frequency analysis

Voyant is a free textual analysis tool that can be found online at voyant-tools.org. This instructional post describes how to use Voyant to do text frequency analysis. This includes using tools that Voyant offers as well as exporting data and analyzing it on a spreadsheet. The video also mentions the other capabilities that the website offers, and demonstrates where different elements can be found on the page. I used a recent project of my own to illustrate each step of the process.
