Accessibility: Ctrl+Right in accessibility mode (CursorWordAccessibilityRight) should jump to the beginning of next word, rather than the end #83449
Issue Type: Bug
(I have fixed this myself and will send a pull request in a minute)
Steps to reproduce:
The biggest problem with this behavior is that screenreader users would have to relearn how they make small edits in text files. For example, if I want to delete the word "world" in my example, I would go to the beginning of the line and press Control+Right until my screenreader announces the word I'm interested in. And then, assuming that cursor at this point is at the beginning of the word, I would press delete 5 times. However, in VSCode the cursor would be at the end of the word, and I would end up deleting wrong part of the line.
