Can file upload do word count?

    I'm trying to set up a form for a proof-reading site. Ideally, I'd like to build a form that:

    a) Performs an automatic word count when customers use File Upload

    b) Calculates price of service based on word count


    Is this possible with Jotform?

    Thanks for your time,

    Hi Rob,

    We do have a widget that displays the count of characters left. However, that is not triggered by a file upload. One should copy and paste the whole text into it. Please see the widget that I refer to:

    I guess this is not functional for you since it does not work word based. It is also not possible to calculate a price by fetching a value from this widget. So, unfortunately, my answer to your second question is negative as well. 

    Please contact us again if you need any further assistance.
