Sortsite:

  • https://www.powermapper.com/buy/all/sortsite/ 
  • FAQs:
    • Can SortSite check pages by domain? – Yes. The tool allows you to literally browse to any website using the software and then crawl the entire site looking for issues. (even sites that aren’t under your own domain)
    • Is there a limit on the number of pages you can check in batch? – 22,000 pages is the limit (see link above)
    • Does it look at docs/pdfs, or just HTML? – The tool scans all documents that it can crawl to (as long as they are linked to on the website it will be scanned)
    • Does it check for outdated code or just accessibility type problems (missing alt tags, no language, etc.)? – Accessibility issues as well as broken links & spelling, browser compatibility.
