Microsoft word: heading level is hidden on braille display when cursor is at start of heading #3701

When reading a line of a Microsoft Word document on a braille display, NVDA communicates that the current paragraph is a heading by showing h# (where number is the outline level) at the start of the text. However, this only shows if the cursor is past the first character. On the first character the heading indicator is erased.
This is indirectly due to the heading controlfields from NVDA's in-process Microsoft word support not exposing the _startOfNode attribute.
