Bim,

It does get tricky. The website is probably designed by a third party and by
the look of it, the widgets are designed by yet another third party.

Best,

David.

Hi,

The fields affected are different but the cause is so similar it looks 
identical.  They've decided on a cool looking JavaScript widget to replace 
the drop-down lists.  The problem is that neither screen reader users nor 
people who have to use keyboard navigation due to mobility problems can 
interact with these fancy widgets.
