Re: Accessible jQuery UI DatePicker

Hi Brian:
I have noticed a couple of issues which I will outline below.

1. Using Internet explorer 8 and Firefox 23, pressing enter on the
calendar button sometimes causes the calendar to quickly appear and then
disappear. I have caused this to occur both with and without Jaws 14
running. I have also noticed that when this happens, the text field
will then contain the value of the current date. It appears that the
current date in the calendar may also be picking up the enter key at
the same time as the calendar button. Does this make sense to you?
This does not seem to happen when the Jaws autoforms mode is turned on.
and turning autoforms mode off causes this to occur regularly. I can
reproduce this quite easily if Jaws is not running.

2. using chrome, after activating the calendar, if I arrow from one
date to another Jaws seems to exit applications mode and continuing to
press arrows causes the virtual cursor functionality to occur instead.
