Improve narrator support for lists
When encountering lists with multiple columns, narrator either reads the first item in the column, or nothing at all. As an example, open the msinfo32 System Information utility from the run box or start menu and tab to the list view. Pressing down arrow causes Narrator to speak "OS Name 1 of 42 selected". If this same list is read with NVDA, it speaks all the information. In this case, it would say Windows 10 Home, Professional, Enterprise, etc. In order to receive the same information with Narrator, it is necessary to press Narrator and the right arrow to move to the next item. While we are talking about lists, there is no need to say the word selected every time focus changes in a list. It should be obvious that the item is selected, so removing this would save time by reducing unnecessary verbosity.
