    • A listbox to choose or type your date;
    • An "OK" button to display a messageBox containing your day;
    • A "Cancel" button to close the dialog.
  • The second one named "dayOfTheWeek add-on settings" opens the parameters of the add-on to specify whether you want to report labels for date fields or not, it is composed of the following elements:
    • Enable accessibility of the date selector;
    • Level of the announces of labels, you will then have 3 choices:
      • Long (it's the default choice);
      • Short (for short announcements);
      • Off (to disable labels announcements).
    • Enable announcement of the current date field value only, when moving vertically;
    • An "OK" button to save your configuration;
    • A "Cancel" button to cancel and close the dialog.
