dumb-it-down

A bookmarklet that makes the selected text easier to read by "dumbing it down." This means replacing difficult words with easier words and removing information deemed unnecessary.

This is a work-in-progress and currently doesn't do anything.

Installation

Add a bookmark to your bookmarks bar with the URL: javascript: + contents of dumb-it-down.js

Usage

  1. Select text that you want to dumb down
  2. Click the bookmarklet you made

Overall Design

  • Insert it back into the page
