Hi Alex,

Thanks!  The table is beginning to make more sense.

> (unselected) item and newly focused (selected) item both.

Actually, the table goes on to say:  " ... arrange events so state
change does not occur on focused item, to avoid extra selection change
announcements".  That clause appears only under the MSAA and ATK/AT-SPI
columns.   UIA says the opposite --  focus change "... should be fired
but individual selection event may not happen to avoid redundancy".

> Also not

Good point.  A common feature of event handling is that the order the
events arrive is typically undefined, and one cannot write one's
handlers in a way that depends on event order.  But, I don't know if ATs
work that way when listening for AAPI events.

Thanks again.
