Removes gender stars and similar constructions that disturb the flow of reading, and replaces them with something else. Currently, only German constructions are handled.
What is Gender-Star-Remover?
Gender-Star-Remover is a Firefox add-on that removes gender stars and similar constructions in German texts, making them easier to read. It replaces these constructions with user-chosen substitutions for both singular and plural forms.
Constructions such as "gender stars" recently emerging in German language can make texts quite hard to read. Accordingly, this add-on replaces these constructions on websites with an easier readable substitution, which can be chosen by the user.
Examples: Expert*In -> Expertwesen EntwicklerInnen -> Entwicklerwesen Lehrer(in) -> Lehrerwesen
It is possible to freely choose substitution texts for both detected singular and plural forms separately. However, the grammatical context is not taken into account, since this in general requires knowledge about the semantics, which are hard to detect programmatically.
Gender-Star-Remover is risky to use as it requires a number of sensitive permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Gender-Star-Remover if you trust the publisher.
Gender-Star-Remover has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.
