Hi,
 You can use javascript to keep track of data entered in text area and as the count reaches a specific value, you can do whatever action that is necessary like calling method, etc.

Example @ http://www.developergeekresources.com/examples/javascript/javascript-textarea_wordcount.php

Hope this helps.
Thanks,
