Accessibility Statement

This is the official accessibility statement for Autoneer. If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact us via the contact us page

The new website uses a technique called "Progressive Enhancement", which means basic content and basic functionality should be accessible to all browsers. Visitors to our site who do not have JavaScript enabled will still be able to search for a vehicle.

Standards compliance

  1. All pages on this site are WCAG A approved, complying with all priority 1 and most of priority 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. This is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and cannot be tested automatically. Autoneer has reviewed the guidelines and believes all pages are in compliance (please see point 4).
  2. Pages on this site to validate as HTML5.
  3. Pages on this site use structured semantic mark-up. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles.
  4. Applications other than at the following address "" may not be standards compliant, but are constantly under review and in the process of being updated for accessibility.

CSS Validators

In order to provide the best possible experience to old and buggy browsers, the Website uses CSS browser hacks in several places to target special CSS to certain browser versions in order to work around bugs in the browsers themselves.

These hacks understandably cause CSS validators to complain that they are invalid. In a couple places, we also use bleeding-edge CSS features that aren't yet fully standardized, but these are used purely for Progressive Enhancement.

Tab key

You can use the Tab key on your keyboard to move between links on a page. A single press of Tab highlights the next link, Shift+Tab highlights the previous link.


  1. Links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article)
  2. Links are written to make sense out of context


  1. All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes.
  2. Complex images include TITLE attributes or inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers

Visual design

  1. This site uses cascading style sheets and Progressive Enhancement for visual layout
  2. This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.
