I am also interested in increasing the accessibility of the datepicker widget by adding a role and aria-label to the div created on the popup calendar. I believe the division is <div id="ui-datepicker-div" .... Something like this will work <div id="ui-datepicker-div" role="complementary" aria-label="JQuery Timepicker"

An additional accessibility concern is that if more than one datepicker are added to a page they all have the same id.

If more than one datepicker is added to a page the role can stay the same, however it would be best to change the aria labels to make them unique.

I see this issue (#9298) is five years old. Can we get an update on it?

Thanks, Russell

Can we get an update on this? The date picker is useless for big corporations or government websites, who are required to be accessible.

I have read the roadmap link and it says it is under development with no ETA. The last edit was over 2 years ago. What is the status here?
