Ah, got it fixed. Now it works in JAWS 12, 13, and 14 in IE 8 and 9, and using both JAWS 14 and NVDA in Firefox.

  Have you noticed that JAWS 14 has apparently broken role=dialog support?

  I noticed this on the date picker demo you mentioned at

    It worked in JAWS 12 and 13 in IE, but no longer in 14.

    I've been having the same trouble with my own date picker at

    So this no longer matches NVDA behavior in FF as expected, and breaks keyboard accessibility for screen reader users even though it's keyboard accessible.

    Subject: accessible date input




    I am looking for an accessible way to input dates that allow the user to either enter the date via the keyboard in a text field or enter the date from an accessible datepicker calendar.


    This is to be used with a site using HTML 4.01 Strict  (i.e. not HTML 5).


    Anyone got any suggestions.
