Description (last modified by VAISHNAVI M G)

API documentation says we can use CTRL + Right/Left arrow to move to next and previous date. This functionality works.. However, the screen readers reads out as "Blank" when we do CTRL + Right/Left arrow.

Steps to replicate in http://jqueryui.com/datepicker/

  1. Have a screen reader running. I am using NVDA.
  2. Select some date so the textbox is filled.
  3. Use keybord to select next date CRTL + Right arrow.

Notice that the screen reader reads out "BLANK". Try 'Page Up', screen reader reads out the selected date in the field.

Expected result: Screen reader should readout the selected date in the field even for CTRL + RIGHT arrow and CTRL + LEFT arrow. Same is expected for CTRL + SHIFT + Pageup/down to move to next/prev year. This can also be replicated in http://jqueryui.com/datepicker/
