Matt and James,

Could we send a few minutes on accessible datepicker patterns.

I am working with the JQuery-UI team working on the next generation datepicker and I have some questions to ask the group.

For example each date cell is:

<td role="gridcell" aria-selected="false" aria-label="Monday, 2/13/17" aria-describedby="ui-id-1-month-label" id="ui-id-1-2017-1-13">
  <button class="ui-state-default" tabindex="-1" data-ui-calendar-timestamp="1486965600000">13</button>

I think they are putting focus on the button and not the grid cell, so it seems the labeling is on the wrong element.

Hope we can talk about this for a few minutes.
