The Story Behind the AIO Sentence Counter

It was a last sunny Saturday morning when I sat down with my morning coffee to catch up on some reading. As I read an article, I remembered that some pending tasks at home had to be done for quite a while. I took the article in parts.

For that, I decided to distribute the article sentence-wise. I have read 50 sentences now; after 2 hours, I’ll read another 50 sentences, and in this way, chunk-wise, I’ll complete reading this article by today’s date. To count sentences, the first tool that came to my mind was MS Office. I tried it but couldn’t find any sentence counter in Microsoft Word. There was only a word counter, lines counter pages, paragraphs, and character counters with and without spaces.

Next, my curiosity increased, and I opened online Google Docs, but there, too, I found only a word and character counter, not any sentence counter in Google Docs. I then looked for an online syllable sentence counter tool to analyze the results. The varying outcomes raised doubts about the accuracy of those counters.

Meanwhile, an idea struck me; just as I needed a sentence count, there might be others, like article writers, students, business owners, and those who need such a tool.

As a coder and developer, I conceived the idea of making a free custom word and sentence counter tool that could accurately identify sentence boundaries, counting sentences and words, characters and paragraphs, and it is before your eyes.

Here, some questions may arise: how would it work? And how would this counter signify the end of a sentence for periods, question marks, and exclamation points? If you don’t know, let’s discuss the details.

Why to Use this Tool?

  • Accurately count sentences even in complex passages with abbreviations (e.g., Mr. and Mrs.) and decimal points.
  • Handle common sentence boundary punctuation like Exclamation points, periods, and question marks.
  • Allow a user to paste or type in text and get back the number of sentences.
  • Build it as a simple web app so it’s accessible to everyone.

How Does It Work?

The sentence character counter tool is user-friendly and simple to use. Here’s how it works:

  • Visit our website,, and open the sentence counter. You’ll see a text area field and a “Count Sentences” button.
  • Input or insert your text into the provided typing space. You can input a sentence, paragraph, or even a full document.
  • Click the “Count Sentences” button. The tool will process the text, accurately counting the number of sentences, even in complex cases with abbreviations and decimal points.
  • The total sentence count will be displayed above the text area.
  • Make edits to the text if needed. I have also added a “Clear Text” button to erase the content without refreshing the browser. You can continue to refine and re-count as needed.

You see how simple the process online sentence length counter I developed is.

Future Plans

I find this little sentence-counting tool to be super helpful for my writing. But I think it could be valuable for a wider audience, too.

Some ideas I have to expand it

  • Add more text processing options like word counts, keyword highlighting, etc.
  • Build the counter extension and integrations with writing apps like Google Docs.
  • Create a “pro” version with added features like readability metrics, suggestions to simplify sentences, etc.
  • Analyze trends over time and suggest where sentence length could be improved.

The remarkable benefit of creating your tools is that you can customize them exactly to your needs. I’m excited to keep enhancing my sentence syllable counter and hopefully help other writers, editors, students, and developers simplify their work.

FAQ s,

I thoroughly searched, but Microsoft Word has no built-in feature to count sentences. Ms Word counts periods as sentence endings. This means it may be inaccurate if there are periods in abbreviations, decimals, or ellipses.

There are a few ways to count sentences:

  • Use an automated tool like an Aio sentence counter that analyses punctuation and contexts to identify sentences. This is the most accurate approach.
  • Another way is to manually count by looking for sentence-ending punctuation like periods, question marks, and exclamation points. But this can be inaccurate if periods appear mid-sentence.

It analyses text and counts sentences by identifying ending punctuation and contextual clues. It’s more advanced than counting periods, allowing accurate counts where manual methods fail.
