I didn't say you couldn't. You were in focus mode, not browse
mode. But you couldn't move through the form, read any text that
wasn't directly associated with an edit field or a check box, go
into focus mode, fill something in, then continue down the form and
read any text other than that associated with an input field.
That is as inadequate as though you could only tab through a web
page form and hear the input fields. You have no idea what
information you might be missing and how important it may be.

Why was I able to press NVDA+Space
and tab through then, hearing various fields and filling in
text if I wanted to?
This was on Windows 10 and NVDA
Yes, you can go into forms mode and tab
around. You can't tab in browse mode nor enter text in the
correct places. NVDA doesn't work correctly with Acrobat when
filling out this form nor the 1040 form Brian sent.

With Acrobat Reader DC, I was able to press NVDA+Space on the first edit field to go into Focus Mode, type my first name in the field, then tab through and hear all other fields. I didn't bother filling them out.
I didn't examine the form in detail, but there appear to be ten unlabeled checkboxes at the end. If I had examined those in browse Mode, I may have been able to determine what they were fore, but I did not hear that as I tabbed through them.
But, yes, I was able to hear the names of and fill in edit fields as I tabbed.
I also tried Jaws, and the overall experience was smoother, but I am also more familiar with that screenreader.
So yes, I am quite confident I would be able to fill out that form and email it back.
