Good question Bryan, and I'll also add that the W3C should ensure we have
JQuery's permission (or at least awareness) before using their code as
examples in our documentation. While JQuery is licensed under the MIT
License (https://jquery.org/license/) it seems it would be, if nothing else,
*polite* to have that discussion to let them know of our intent, and steps
MUST be taken (if we do this) to respect the MIT license, including
providing the original copyright and license notice in any copy of the
software/source we use.

If we are going to be including jQuery UI examples within the APG, are we
also allowing other APIs too if provably accessible?

 

Also there should be no requirement that a calendar can only consist of a
Grid.

Matt,

 

Felix one of the developers for the calendar widget would like input on the
accessibility design specifications before they start implementing the
accessibility features.

 

They know it is not accessible now, but would like design specifications on
what they should do.

 

I will take the APA groups comments and enter them in to the design wiki so
they know what to do.

 

Jon

John,

 

When it is closer to ready, yes . but not in its current state.

 

I did a quick test with JAWS and NVDA in Firefox. I am not sure where focus
is going on tab, but tabing through is completely silent with both.

 

It is not possible to close the window with the keyboard; the JS is eating
all keys.

 

The grid markup looks decent, but the grids need to be labeled.

 

The button markup in the grid is good.

 

I am happy to give it another go when you have some fixes.

 

Matt

Matt and James,

 

Could we spend some time reviewing a new calendar widget (e.g. multiple
months in one dialog box) from the JQUery-UI team.

http://view.jqueryui.com/datepicker/demos/calendar/multiple-months.html
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__view.jqueryui.com_datep

ldWSz3hXMnrGR9rcRtZSKilQ_8QgStlY-H_CFsEYPs&e=>  

 

They have asked for some accessibility feedback and I would like to get some
feedback on the roles and keyboard model for this composite widget.

 

It would be a good example to include in the authoring practices guide of a
complex widget.
