“It is my understanding that if there is an area for the user to input the date, that the calendar would not need to be accessible. Although, going the extra mile to making it accessible would be ideal.” I find this an interesting  statement. As your assuming a person knows the date they want to use. What occurs if the user knows it is the 3rd Wednesday of the month they need to enter in the date field? If they cannot access the calendar and the calendar provides the correct information. Then the user is stuck and has to use alternative methods.

It is my understanding that if there is an area for the user to input the date, that the calendar would not need to be acessible. Although, going the extra mile to making it accessible would be ideal.

My first question would be do the date pickers in question provide an alternate entry form?  If the date can be typed in, and is keyboard accessible for that function, is the calendar portion required to be accessible?

Subject: Should Datepickers be treated as a Modal Dialog?

Hello All,

Every example of an “accessible” date picker I have looked at online does not treat the datepicker as a modal dialog. Is this because it is not a seen as a modal dialog but rather a specific task based widget? Should the datepicker container <div> take on the same characteristics as a modal such as hiding the background from screen readers when the datepicker calendar is active?


Thank you,
