Add character count component #959
This PR is a proposal for integrating the character count component to govuk-frontend.
Preserved optional features
Hint and Error message
Dropped optional features
JAWS repeats the label of the textarea each time an aria-live associated with the textarea is updated.
A side note on this feature, might not be relevant to this PR directly: I think the logic (eg the regex) that determines how many words are present should be surfaced somehow, as this will need to be reused in any server side validation so that both frontend and backend are consistent.
This is excellent work, thanks so much Alex this will helps lots of teams across GOV. I love the care that has gone into the research and efforts to make this component work well in assistive technologies like Dragon.
If we can release this today we might be able to publish it today
