I want to make a small correction.
The title edit field is the only edit field available initially, when setting up your Google appointment.
To find the description edit field you first need to locate the description button. This area is collapsed and needs to be expanded before trying to locate the edit field.

When placing dates into your Google appointments, either use up and down arrows, with right or left arrows.
Otherwise, just type the numeric values into the edit fields, as Curtis indicated. Do not use read-next-word, or previous-word, Control+RightArrow & Control+LeftArrow, when interacting with times and dates.
As to the description edit field, use the virtual cursor to locate that edit field, using JAWS, the letter E while using the virtual cursor.
“When trying to make a calendar appointment, JAWS keeps losing focus when I have to select date and time. I have to force it to come back to the time and date that I want it to select. Do you know why this happens? How can I fix this?”
Honestly, I just enter the date and time directly instead of trying to pull dates and times from a list. So, for a date, enter mm/dd/yy. For a time enter something like “10:00 pm”. A date of March 5, 1980, would be entered as 03/02/1980.
I find Google Calendar online to be very useful except that I often have to tab quite a bit to get to the Description field.
All the best,
I use JAWS 2021 and Google Chrome Version 100.0.4896.127.
