you¹d like to chat about what led to our decision, please contact me

Scanning/Crawling/Reporting systems.

The primary concern I have with Siteimprove (and not to lay into any
one vendor here) is that their documentation says they do not scan the
DOM (content added or modified via JavaScript), only the HTML source.
This is in their official documentation (sadly only available behind a
login).
If true, it gives an inaccurate results for the modern web where
Javascript is essential to how the web works, and where a gizillion
things can be fixed with ARIA and JavaScript (I am not saying it is
the ideal way to fix the web, we know it is not, but it is possible
and it is common).
