In browse/cursor mode screen reader is not announcing full names of week days presented in the calendar popup


Description

Screen reader is not narrating 'submit information' after invoking 'submit' button. Same issue replicates throughout the application where calendar appears. Screen Readers users will get confused as they will not get proper description of the week days acronyms displayed.

Steps to Reproduce

1: Enable NVDA.
2: Open /change_request_list.do.
3: Navigate to any existing change request.
4: Navigate to Schedule > Planned start date > Calendar control.
5: Within the open Calendar widget, navigate the dates using the down arrow keys.

In browse/cursor mode, the screen reader does not fully announce the days present in the calendar popup. Days 'S, M, T, W, T, F, S' are not descriptive. When focus lands on these days, both JAWS and NVDA are announcing as 'heading level 1 Column 2 S, heading level 1 Column 3 M, heading level 1 Column 4 T, heading level 1 Column 5 W, heading level 1 Column 6 T, heading level 1 Column 7 F, heading level 1 Column 8 S'; instead of announcing 'Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday'.
