I’m running into some accessibility and SEO issues that should really be addressed in a theme update.
First, the header logo does not have an alt tag; it’s empty. I updated functions-specular.php (lines 173, 181, 183, and 190) to use the site’s title to fix this issue. But, it really should use the alt text entered in the media library.
In addition, using the Media element in WP Bakery Page Builder, under the Codeless Elements tab, sets the alt tag to “Alt Text” instead of using the alt text assigned to the image in the media library.
Lastly, when the using WAVE web accessibility evaluation tool, it’s flagging the a tag with the classes “mobile_small_menu open” as an empty link which it is. It appears right after the “End custom menu here” comment. This should have an aria-label but I can’t find where it is being generated in the code.

One other item that I found after posting this thread. On the testimonials carousel, you have the person’s title set to “#bbb !important” on line 2100 of /wp-content/plugins/specular-wpbakery-addons/public/css/specular-wpbakery-addons-public.css. On light backgrounds, it causes a contrast error with WAVE. Due to the “!important” declaration, this can’t be overridden in a child theme style sheet or within the Specular custom styles box. I had to remove it from the file in order to fix this accessibility issue.
