The NoteCase Pro outliner has this feature. <http://notecasepro.com/>.
Download and install, select free Trial Version when launching
(feature is missing from the free Lite version). Look for the Word
Count option on the Writing Tools submenu of the Tools menu. It
displays character count as well as word count for the current node.

I don't know how well that program does for accessibility.

LibreOffice Writer's Word Count feature also displays character count,
either for the document or for selected text.

Best regards,
