A few thoughts about the general implementation of accessible widgets: Let me use the date input as an example. In what way does date widgets help me, being non disabled? By visualizing the calendar I can pick "Tuesday next week" without having to calculate the actual date. Could a date widget be equally easy to use for a blind person, i.e. would it accept someone typing - or saying (speech recognition) - natural phrases like "the first Sunday in July" or "two days after Thanksgiving"? Perhaps there is a better place to discuss this. Please advice if that is the case. I just wanted to broaden the thinking about what truly accessible HTML5 forms really mean.
"two days after birthday of my wife" ;) sounds fantastic and I find this can be really friendly. But I learn towards it shouldn't be part of core but it can be done as an extension. Marco, what do you think?
