I use the ace versions of these motion commands, e.g.

    (define-key evil-motion-state-map ";" 'evil-ace-jump-line-mode)
    (define-key evil-motion-state-map "f" 'evil-ace-jump-word-mode)
    (define-key evil-motion-state-map "F" 'evil-ace-jump-char-mode)

which might do what you want although quite differently from the
standard motion behaviour.
