Allow table navigation commands in Google Docs #7946
Link to issue number:
Summary of the issue:
Google Docs allows for tables in documents. Currently when arrowing around these documents with Google Docs braille mode enabled, NVDA announces these tables. However, it does not allow the user to perform NVDA table navigation commands (such as control+alt+arrows).
Description of how this pull request fixes the issue:
The IA2Web Editor NVDAObject now inherits also from documentBase.DocumentWithTableNavigation, and also implements _getTableCellAt. This allows table navigation to work for any editable content within an IAccessible2 web implementation (Firefox, Chrome etc).
Created a document in Google Docs. Inserted a table. Arrows into the table, and then performed table navigation commands (up, down, left right).

Change log entry:
An issue raised asking for table navigation in Google Docs: #7942 which suggests that one must swap to browse mode. This PR doesn't make it clear if table navigation is available in focus mode / browse mode / or both, could you mention that in the description?
