Subject: [WebAIM] jQuery Calendar Control

Hello All,
I've created a form that has a field for inputting a date of birth. I'm
using the jQuery Datepicker, set to open when an icon to the right of the
box is clicked. Otherwise a mask is used to restrict the formatting of
the date to "mm/DD/yyyy".

Here is a jsFiddle link: http://jsfiddle.net/GregS/YUWMc/embedded/result/

Anyway, my question is .. does the mask or Datepicker inhibit those using
a screen reader? Does it help? Is it even viewable?
