Yes, it’s using shift up arrow or shift down arrow to select text so that you can move it.

I suspect that what is being discussed is selecting
by moving, such as moving by line, not using the read selected text command or
read what is on the clipboard command but we'll see if that is what is

NVDA reports the number of characters selected when it is over 512
from memory. Are you selecting more than that number of characters, or is
it doing it for smaller amounts now?
If it's that you happen to be selecting more than 512 characters, that
isn't new, but you could create an issue outlining the reasoning for wanting the
ability to have all selected text read as an option. Partly the reason for
implementing it was synthesizer lag processing large amounts of text.
If the issue is that you have less than 512 characters selected then that
is unintended and I'd be interested in more information about your system and
exact steps to reproduce.
This happens to me as well. I hate that - we need the actual
data not the char count.
