Discards the "has details" state change message unless the annotations config option is turned on.

Follows from #12439
Reporting "has details" and summarizing the details was not supported in focus mode or content editable.

Description of change:
- Adds system tests for focus mode / content editable
- Exposes an in-process approach to summarize an IAccessible
 getTextFromIAccessible moved from ia2LiveRegions.cpp to textFromIAccessible.h/cpp
 and exposed as nvdaInProcUtils_getTextFromIAccessible via IA2Support.cpp
- Now it is easier to fetch the details relation targets from python code.
- Updates reporting of has details and details summary to work in both browse and focus mode.

Known issues:
Currently only a single relation can be summarized. Support for multiple details 
relations will be added later, there are various UX concerns that will need to be resolved.
