Many Office dialogs use MSO commandbar toolbars. But most if not all of them only contain either 1 control, or one child grouping of controls. Also usually their description is their name + role, and sometimes their name can even be something like Mso Control Container which clearly is some kind of place holder name. This name should be filtered out, and the toolbar itself should be filtered out of the focus ancestry if it only has one child. NVDA already has code for this in its Outlook support. This code should be generalized.
