Can anyone recommend a form prototyping tool (a la Typeform, or Google forms, etc.), that can present questions in the form of "fill-in-the-blank."

I want to be able to present the user with a sentence where part of it is missing, and the blank is actually a text entry field they can complete. I am looking for something similar to how it's done here: https://www.hioscar.com/get-quote/

Any suggestions?

    a bit more info. This kind of form is often referred to as either a "mad libs" form or a "natural language" form, as per this blog post: jroehm.com/2014/01/ui-pattern-natural-language-form – Misha Volf Nov 6 '17 at 20:35
  • Is there a reason you need a builder instead of just writing it yourself? If you're comfortable modifying HTML there's codrops: tympanus.net/codrops/2013/05/21/… – invot Mar 19 '18 at 17:27

    the idea is to be able to prototype these kinds of prompts quickly. The code in the link you provided seems simple enough to adjust to demonstrate a concept, but I guess what I'm ultimately after is a specialized tool for this kind of interface. – Misha Volf Mar 20 '18 at 18:37

You can have a look at https://www.jotform.com.

Here is a guide where the author is using jotforms to create a fill-in-the-blanks form similar to what you want :-


    form action="" id="usrform">
what is your name? <input type="text" name="name">
<input type="submit">

The question and input must be on the same line, then add css to remove input background, remove border input and add border-bottom color to the input. i think you know the css.
