      The "scrollIncrement" property configures the number of items to
      scroll when the arrow key is pressed, or when the scrollBackward(),
      scrollForward() methods are called. The navigation buttons do not
      call scrollBackward() or scrollForward(), instead invokes the
      scrollPageBackward() and scrollPageForward() methods which scrolls a
      page backward or forward. A page is defined by the value of the
      "numVisible" property.

      So, my suggestion is that you can replace the navigation buttons with
      yours to scroll only one item (by invoking
      scrollBackward/scrollForward methods), or you can add buttons to do as

      The Carousel automatically calculates the width of the container based
      on the width of a single item. Also, if the width of a single item is
      less that it cannot accommodate the width of the navigation buttons,
      it assigns the minimum width to accommodate the navigation buttons.

      Whether the Carousel should use the width set in the CSS (always
      assuming the developer is right), or automatically calculate the width
      may require some thoughts. Please add your valuable inputs to the bug
      that's already opened for the same.
