I've done some preliminary testing with Calc and NVDA.  NVDA properly reads the cell coordinates as 
well as any data contained within the cell as you use the arrow keys.  This is how screen readers 
handle spreadsheets in excel, and this is good news.  However, if I type any data within a cell, 
pressing arrow keys after I enter any data reads too much information, namely the title of the open 
workbook folowed by instructions telling me that I can edit or enter data.  It does this every time 
I use arrow keys to move from cell to cell.  When I compared this to the behavior in OpenOffice, I 
noticed that OpenOffice does not have this bug and allows me to just hear the cell and its 
corresponding data while arrowing through the spreadsheet.  Again, Libreoffice only begins reading 
too much information after I enter data into a cell.
