Converting Column and Row screen reader announcements to A-1 Notation for a grid?

How do I convert row and column announcements from a grid or table into A-1
notation? I’m trying to make a screen reader accessible spreadsheet and I
would like to announce the cells the user moves to in A-1 notation like:

“A1”, “B5”, “AA1”…

This is congruent with Excel and Google Sheets.

How can I do this with role=”grid” and or <table>?

Thank you,
