Good day nvda guys

I am sorry to bother you today.

How does one read the version of an application with nvda?

With jaws, this is accomplished with alt+ctrl+v.

You can usually do so by typing alt to open the menus, then typing h to open help, then a to open the about dialog.  So the sequence is alt h then a.  The number will be read.  If it isn't, use NVDA key b to have the dialog read.
 
You are doing this by using program commands.  JAWS uses proprietary commands to do something for which there is no reason.  It keeps people from learning the Windows ways of doing the things and makes them more dependent on JAWS.

Hello,

If you press NVDA+F1, this info will be available except if the
developer of focused application has not specified it to the executable.

Press down arrow until the line beginning with "appModule.productVersion".

Regards,

Patrick

Patrick Zajda made 2012 an add-on for this purpose, so you can just press NVDA+Shift+V to announce the App Name and the version info. Another community member converted it in 2016 I believe to the new add-on package later. to use it in newer NVDA versions. The name of the add-on is sayProductAndVersion.
