    How can I replace special characters from entire form text fields?

    E.g: the user types the words like "açucar, lição, área" in the text field.
    In the outpout the result is" acucar, licao, area" .

    I know how to do this in Adobe LiveCycle.

    Could someone explain me step by step how can I do this with every form field?

    I've been looking for this question in the forum and on the internet, but I couldn't understand.

    Thank you

    Unfortunately, this does not seem to be possible to achieve on JotForm, we do have actually the feature to copy values from one field to another, but they will be copied exactly as they were typed in the original field. 

    You may implement your own code for this, but you will need to get the source code of your form as code is not allowed on the builder.
