ADA/WCAG compliance

Who at Duda can I discuss access to compliance controls with? I have a handful of widgets I use where the difference between compliance and not are access to a few simple controls. Examples being a missing form label for the blog search widget, or empty links with the social icons widget.

I logged a support case last week and was laughed at (literally) when I suggested these enhancements get bumped to the top of the dev queue.

I know of a local business getting sued due to non-compliance (not on Duda) and his developers/widget owners are taking these requests very seriously.

I'm reading that overlays alone (like AudioEye) do not guarantee compliance despite claims. https://www.forbes.com/sites/gusalexiou/2021/10/28/why-automated-tools-alone-cant-make-your-website-accessible-and-legally-compliant/?sh=7ced3533364e

Thoughts?
