Can someone give me some instructions how I can set nvda to read telephone numbers in terms of digits without effection other applications?
This can be handled by a dictionary entry using a regular expression (or, perhaps, several) if you are able to clearly define the format you consider to be "a phone number."   Since this varies somewhat by locale, it's important to know the formats you would want read as chunks of individual digits, and that would include punctuation.

As two examples for the USA:  (540) 571-6820    or 540-571-6820  would be typical phone number formats.

The add-on mentioned does not seem to be specific enough in attending to formatting cues.
