Accessibility: Post textbox does not read characters when reviewing with arrow keys

Description

Customer report:

"i cannot see in braille what i am typing, nor is JAWS able to speak it."
"From my own user perspective, the only show stopper I see would be not being able to read in braille, or hear with speech what is being written in the message window."

Repro:
1. Type some characters in the message input box
2. Use the arrow keys to move back and forth through the text

Observed: no read out of characters
Expected: Characters are read when arrowing through them and text can be reviewed with INSERT+5, INSERT+8

Note: This should apply to the RHS and main message input fileds

QA Test Steps

Also make sure to test if message autocomplete is being read out when you arrow through the results of @ or ~
