Say All is the same as it's always been.  NVDA+DownArrow for desktop keyboard layout and NVDA+a for laptop, where the default NVDA key is INSERT and CAPS LOCK, respectively.

If you are asking about reading the current screen and nothing more, that command is NVDA key b. 
 
But that command won't necessarily read the full screen.  It may read just the focused structure, such as if you are in a dialog, it may read just that. (If you are in some other part of a program, it may read the full screen. 
 
As the description says when using input help, reads the current foreground object.

Yes and at times can get into a loop repeating itself for ever till its interrupted, but nevertheless it can be very handy since there are times when screen and other navigation modes will not see what that can, and this can enable one to point out a problem in, for example a bug report.

May it be changed?
I'd believe so.
However, be warned that it's not advised to change default keystrokes, for many reasons. One of them is that if you get used to your own keystroke for a command, when you have to work with another computer, of course said keystroke will be different and you'll be at the risk of don't remembering it.

Now, here are the steps if you still want to change something:
If you go to NVDA Menu > Preferences > Input Gestures (maybe this latter don't have this exact name, but it's something close to it) you can set any keystroke according with your preferences.
You'll have a filter where you can type in something that is a part of the command name or its description.
When you've finished typing, hit tab and you'll be presented with the results for what you've typed. You can then press up/down arrows to move through the options.
When you find the result you want, hit tab until "add" and press spacebar.
Just after pressing spacebar on the "add" button, enter with your new keystroke for this command.
Then you'll have to choose if this command will be valid for the laptop or desktop layout, or even both.
When you've finished with it, OK to exit this dialog.
That's it :)
