With this intuitive and easy-to-use functionality in place, those who require additional assistance interacting with this website (including viewers with situational disabilities, blind and visually impaired individuals, those with mobility impairments, and the elderly) will now instantly have access to the tools they need to enjoy the complete range of services and content offered by Oakes Auto. For all others, these features will remain unobtrusive and unnoticed as part of the standard viewing and navigating experience.
As far as why we have added this functionality to the Oakes Auto online experience, the reasoning behind this latest update is twofold:
