When pressing caret movement keys in MS Word 2013 (and possibly earlier versions) the resulting caret event (specifically MSAA locationChange on OBJID_CARET) is either greatly delayed or does not get sent at all. This causes Braille display updates to be slow or sometimes non-existant.
We should requires braille to handle the caret move at the end of the core cycle, for any caret movement script.

Request braille to handle a caret move at the end of the core cycle from all editableText caret movement scripts. Fixes #3784

It would be nice to get this also fixed when the brailledisplay is tethered to review. I prefer using that mode for working with the brailledisplay and don't need/want much contextual information about focused object.
Tested with today's next snap. Word 2013. Braille fails to refresh when tethered to review.
