Table headers in Inbox are not read properly by screen readers

Bug Description

When navigating the notifications table in the Inbox using a screen reader, "Read" and "Delete" are not read out as column headers - instead "Select All" is read.
This issue is probably due to having a <br> in the table header and would be fixed if "Select All" could be moved elsewhere.

Affects latest master (using Orca 3.4.2)

(WCAG Level A)

This should be tested in JAWS and/or NVDA to see if it's handled any better.

Julius has tested in NVDA/JAWS:
JAWS speaks "read / select all" and "delete / select all" as 4th and 5th column headers
NVDA does not read any column header, and just speaks the cell contents (checkbox, "read" icon)

Rearranged Inbox table headers for screen reader users (Bug #1259411)

Moved "Select all" buttons to the table footer and moved "Mark as read" and
"Delete" buttons into a separate div. This allows screen readers to read out
the "Read" and "Delete" column headers properly.
