Description

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'.

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