    The file upload button text is inherent to a browser and cannot be changed. What you can do is to switch your single file upload button into multiple one. To do that, simply follow the steps below.

    1. While on your Form (Edit Mode), click on your File Upload field.

    2. Click on Allow Multiple button in the Tool bar.

    3. Right click the Multiple File Upload field, select Properties and change the Button Text.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!

    I have the same issue here.

    I understood that by switching "Allow multipe" we can see "upload a file" instead of "parcourir", but we want to remain single choice by each upload. What should we do?
