When moving the focus around a spreadsheet in Excel 2013, NVDA fails to read the new cell most of the time, though this does depend on whether there is content in a given cell. Microsoft has implemented some UI Automation support in Excel 2013, but in this case it is incomplete and confuses NVDA.
We must mark the speadsheet window (EXCEL7) as being a bad UIA implementation. However before this can properly take affect, #3354 must be implemented.
Blocked by #3354
