Why are accents or lack of no longer corrected?

Been learning Spanish for about 6 months now and the answers always corrected any mistakes relating to accents over the letters. Now this does not happen and I feel this is poor as the correct use of accents is important and in many cases changes the meaning of the word.

Minor spelling errors - including not-so-minor errors that change verb conjugations - are also being ignored.

That said, I think functionality is possibly being slowly restored, as the system actually did flag a few mistakes of this type today in one of the earlier skills of a specific tree.

I think we need to keep calling in the forum for accents and spelling advice to be added back.
