Our Story

We dreamed of a more accessible future. So, we created PowerMapper.

Based in Edinburgh, we're a team of digital accessibility specialists dedicated to providing easy-to-use tools that map, test, and analyze websites.

In 1996, PowerMapper Software started with one man who saw that existing accessibility testing tools simply weren't good enough. He knew he could make a more powerful tool at a more affordable price. Armed with nothing but his computer (and a good brew), he realized his dream the only way he knew how. A year of coding later (plus a few more brews) and our one-click web testing and site mapping tool was born.

Fast forward a few decades, PowerMapper has grown into a team of driven experts bound by the belief that accessibility isn't just our mission, it's our passion. Through our dedication to innovative and flexible accessibility solutions, we're fueling a more inclusive future one site at a time.

We're the industry-choice for over 30% of the Fortune 100, including many of the world's largest organisations such as NASA, Disney, and UNICEF. Our products have travelled far and wide, reaching more than 50 countries in every corner of the globe.

Compliance is our craft, but people are our priority

That’s why our technology is informed by evidence-based testing which allows us to understand accessibility rather than just practice it. Over a decade of this data has resulted in our tools blazing the industry with their low false positive rates.
