Accessible date pickers or accessible calendar widgets as they are commonly referred to, are one of the most discussed topics between developers, designers and accessibility professional. It is not hard to make a calendar widget accessible but still we find inaccessible date pickers in the wild that are not usable by any assistive technology. We can always provide alternative ways of providing the date but when a date picker is provided it must be made accessible as the date pickers give information about the day, week & year details when compared to a text field where we are forced to guess & enter the date.

Recently, a friend approached asking me to share any examples of accessible calendar widgets  and sure enough my friend Denis from Webaxe has a good collection here which I also listed below… all of these date pickers seem to work well with JAWS and Chrome browser and you might want to customize them further according to your needs.
