Why not simply use Stata to count the number of words used in the
graphs and then add that to the Word total.

For example:

sysuse auto,clear
local title "This is the title"
local caption "This is the caption"
scatter mpg weight , title(`title') caption(`caption')

local mywordcount wordcount("`title'") + wordcount("`caption'")
disp  `mywordcount'
