Using with websites

1 min. estimated reading time

We built structal from the ground up to work with your content whatever that content might be. That means our goal is for it to work with any, that's right any website. New York Times, Wikipedia, NPR, Newsela, you name it, structal should work there.

On websites

When the extension is activated by clicking the icon , the supports should appear if the website is a normal website.

Certain websites, like Google Docs, Google Slides, game websites, and textbook/curriculum websites are not normal websites. They use a specific kind of web technology, called a canvas, that makes building interactive experiences easier, but prevents Chrome Extensions from seeing the content. You may have noticed these issues with any students who use screen readers.

That being said, we do have workarounds for Google Docs and Google Slides that allow you to use structal with them.

If structal is not working on a website that you want it to work on, please reach out to and we'll try to figure out a way to make it happen for you!

It works automatically on certain educational sites

The following is a list of educational webpages that structal currently works on automatically (without needing the click the icon) once you have the extension installed. Of course, you can manually get supports on any site by clicking the structal icon to activate the extension.
