IAccessibleText has functions to retrieve the word that a cursor position is contained in. Right now we have our own limited implementation of this, but we should be getting the word breaks from the operating system (in views/accessibility/native_view_accessibility_win) and from WebKit (in content/browser/accessibility/browser_accessibility_win). Otherwise pressing Ctrl+Right or Ctrl+Left to move to the next or previous word won't move by the same amount that the screen reader describes.

When going to next/previous word with CTRL+LEFT/RIGHT, the entire contents of omnibox is reported, but when selecting  by word with CTRL+SHIFT+LEFT/RIGHT all is fine.
