Sorry I'm late on this information. However, it would sound like
something is hanging up the response of NVDA and Adobe to tell the
user that the application is being loaded. I have questioned this
action being a problem when using Windows 11, but is this a UAI
Problem, or something with NVDA or Adobe?

Well, when I open the form Bob gave the link for, I eventually end
up having it act just like any random web form would in terms of
tabbing through the form fields. There are also a number of
checkboxes to indicate a given piece of equipment in the list has
been returned and these are on the second page of the form.
But note well, I said "eventually." I can't make any sense of
what's going on, and am not getting any useful status either from
Adobe or from NVDA with regard to whether there is background
processing going on by the Accessibility Wizard to hand
information to NVDA that it would not otherwise have. But
whatever is happening it is NOT fast. I can play around for at
least 1 minute, possibly somewhat longer, whether via point and
click or using tab to move among the various fields. Then, after
waiting for a while, suddenly tabbing between the fields gives the
field label, including the colon that's a part of each label, when
you land in the various fields.
Very strange. No rational person would expect a lag like this
between opening a document and being able to use it with a screen
reader sans any sort of warning that they needed to wait for
something to finish before they start.
