BROWSERS: Our system only supports Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox

The maximum limit of 2000 characters (ca. 200 words) refers to manually typed text (spaces included).

TEXT ONLY: If you copy-paste the text, hidden formatting might still be included and you will be informed that your text exceeds the limit of 2000 characters. We recommend either:

  1. saving your text as text only in your editor or Email programme, OR
  2. copy-pasting it into Notepad and then onto the website.

Some web browsers do not accept letters close to the 2,000 character count.

If you have special symbols in your text make sure you are using Unicode characters, otherwise these will not be recognised by the tool.
