A word count can be helpful particularly when working with a voiceover artist to determine how long your voiceover will last. In Boords, you'll have the option to count the words from the Sound field or from all active note fields.

This article will explain how to enable and disable the word count on your storyboards👇

First, open the sidebar on your storyboard:

Head to the Settings tab, then select Storyboard.

Enable the "Show word count" toggle.

If you'd like to count the words from all of the note fields (i.e. not just the Sound field), enable the "Use all fields in word count" toggle.

The word count will then be shown above your storyboard in the top left-hand corner.
