Using NVDA and JAWS, the keystroke is insert + T to read the title bar.

Control t reads the title bar.  NVDA tab reports the object with focus, according to input help.  Every program has a title bar and using the read title bar command is important if you want to know what program you are in.
 
You can use any command that generates speech and doesn't move you.  I said to use control t not because it is the only one, but because that is one such command.
 
I didn't go into an explanation for simplicity and efficiency in the instructions.
