For testing the accessibility of website,
pa11y is a great tool. It only runs on one page at a time, though, so this tool crawls a site to find all HTML pages and runs
pa11y on each one.
It is also designed to be used as the data collection tool for continua11y, a continuous integration service for web accessibility.
npm install -g pa11y-crawl
jq is also required in order to manipulate JSON files. See that project's download instructions to install it.
