VoiceOver unresponsive for a few seconds after wake on Big Sur, anyone else?

macOS & Mac Apps

After updating to Big Sur I consistently find that when waking my Mac there can be anything up to 5 seconds before VoiceOver becomes responsive.

I am seeing this on two different Macs, which suggests that it might not be an issue specific to my setup. One of these is a M1 MacBook Air, so one would assume that it has to be a software issue rather than hardware performance.

I have enough residual vision to know that the Mac has actually woken, and that Command-Tab will move me through applications during this time when VoiceOver is silent.

Is anybody else experiencing this?
