The use of the word "supports" is a little ambiguous. NVDA 2013.1.1 provides
landmark navigation to all landmarks, including "form", but not
"application". In that sense, in the context of providing easy navigation to
various sections of a page, NVDA does not support the "application"
landmark. At the same time, NVDA does, as Sailesh notes, enter
focus/application mode when it comes across a container set with
role="application" and in that sense does support it.

Maybe use something like 'NVDA 2013.1.1 supports navigation to all landmarks
except "application".'?
