Go to, and create a new bug issue.

The template you fill in there will ask for all the basic information that is needed.
You have described the issue pretty well here, and if you provide this information it should be a good start.

Report things like a common current Windows version, whether you've run without add-ons and get the same results, and whether you're able to downgrade to (or use a portable copy of) NVDA 2020.2 or earlier and get the corrected results again.

You can also search there for other issues similar to this, although personally I don't remember hearing of one.
