This appears to be a bug in Acrobat Reader DC. I tried doing this with NVDA. Same result. No movement to the page specified.

I’m wondering if you change the View to single page under the view menu would that make a difference?
Another way and I don’t know if it will place you on the specific page you want in the pdf is to use the JAWS Layered Command, Insert + Spacebar + O + D and at the end of the conversion save it to Word.
This is just a suggestion.

There's probably an obvious solution to this, but I'm not finding it!
Here's an example:
I'm on page 1 of a pdf.
I use CTRL+Shift+N to go to another page, for example, page 40.
The popup appears and I enter page 40 in it.
When I click Okay, I am taken to page 40.
However, when I hit INSERT+Down Arrow or the Down Arrow on page 40,
JAWS jumps back to page 1 and reads that instead.
This is happening in all pdf's and the page numbers above are an example. If I started on page 40 and wanted to go to page 80, JAWS would return to page 40.
How do I get JAWS to read the page I want?
