Firefox 8.0 JAWS 13 Datepicker demos  http://view.jqueryui.com/branches/datepicker/datepicker-rewrite/index.html

  1. Application mode is not enabled when arriving at date picker, so can only interact with control using links (prev, next, numeric dates) by pressing enter / space. Cannot use up / down and left / right arrows to navigate the grid, and cannot use pgup / pgdown / alt + pgup / alt + pgdown.

If application mode is enabled manually (JAWS key + z) and I tab to the datepicker I can use all key combinations.

  1. 'Prev' and 'Next' links do not have clear purpose.
  1. No indication what has changed when clicking 'next'. JAWS does not announce 'December 2011'.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Closing as datepicker is moved to a future release. I've added a link to this ticket on the planning page for datepicker.
