I have considered having someone read the screen
for me, but the main computer I use is headless.
I have considered getting sighted assistance via
TeamViewer for this particular task.
Too bad they don't just use a check box and a
move-up and move-down button as I've seen before.
This just involves re-ordering the priority of data
transfer between all the devices logged into my router.

Drag and drop, at least via the mouse (which is how I use it),
is drag and drop regardless of the locale in which the action is being
used. I cannot imagine this is any different for screen reader emulation
But I do know from past experience that screen reader
emulation of same is not necessarily consistent and takes a while to "get the
hang of." I have no idea whether you may have access to a sighted
assistant, but it's often very handy to have someone with "eyes on" when
you're first trying to get this to work so that they can confirm that the
visual result is what is expected based on what you're trying to
accomplish. It also helps you to avoid a lot of experimentation
where you can't be certain that things are working as expected (and where you
can teach yourself what you don't want to reinforce).
I just remember
that, when I can avoid it, I encourage my students to avoid drag and
drop. Sometimes you can't, but practicing how to do this is always more
complicated and lengthy than a lot of other things related to screen reader
If anyone happens to know of a web page (or web pages) out there
that's set up to allow someone to play with dragging and dropping those would
be good to know about for practice purposes. It's just not used
all that often, and I don't have any that I can think of off the top of my
