Hi,

I've tested Han's demos on iOS and the date picker didn't test so well. See http://www.iheni.com/wai-aria-support-on-ios/

One thing to remember is that ARIA support on mobile is not mature and as such not a fail safe solution. It's great to use to progressively enhance an already accessible page however.

Using a standard drop down for users to select dates from would do the trick.
