To make sure you are in object navigation mode, for the desktop, issue the command NVDA key numpad 1.  Hold the NVDA key and press numpad 1.  You will either hear that you are in objectnavigation mode or you will hear something else.  Press it repeatedly until you hear either something like object navigation or something like no previous mode.  Object navigation is the first mode.
To move from object navigation to whatever modes are available, use NVDA key numpad 7. 
 
Unless this has changed in recent versions of NVDA that I haven't used, numpad 5 doesn't read the current object unless you are in object navigation mode or unless you are in screen review mode and you are on the current object while in screen review mode. It reads your current position in screen review mode. 
 
Also, it would make no sense for that command to switch you to object navigation mode.  If you are in screen review mode, you want to review the screen and not be moved into a different mode when issuing a read command such as read current item.
