Datepicker: does not announce to AT with keyboard shortcuts

Reported by: dylanb Owned by: dylanb
Priority: minor Milestone: none
Component: ui.datepicker Version: 1.10.3
Keywords: a11y Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

When using VoiceOver and the Command-LEFT and Command-RIGHT keys to move the highlighted date in the date picker a blind user would not be aware of which day is selected.

Also, the user is not aware what the currently selected year or month is.

Also when changing the year or month using the keyboard shortcuts, no announcements are made.

summary: Datepicker does not announce the datepicker information on OS X with VoiceOverDatepicker: does not announce to AT with keyboard shortcuts

I made the title a little more generic here because this behavior is not specific to VoiceOver or OS X. Do you have any suggestions of how we could announce this information?

I have successfully implemented this with aria-live announcements similar to what is being done in
