You forgot to mention the laptop keystroke for
turning off the JAWS Touch cursor, which is, hold down the CAPS LOCK key, and
tapping the semicolon key, twice quickly.

Subject: Re: How to interact with the
tree view of OneDrive Choose Folders dialog box
readers are not reading the names of the items which you navigate the tree
using the standard keystrokes.
You can work around this problem using Jaws'
touch cursor, which is the equivalent of NVDA's object navigation. You can use
the touch cursor to move the focus to the desired item in the tree, return to
the PC cursor, and then use the normal keystrokes to open/close the item or
check or uncheck it.
To switch to the touch cursor, press shift + numpad
plus, or SHIFT+CAPS LOCK+SEMICOLON if using the laptop keyboard layout. You
can then navigate the tree using right/left arrow. Move to the item you want
to have focus, and press Enter or Spacebar so that the item becomes the focus.
Press numpad plus twice to return to using the PC cursor. You can then
open/close the item or change whether it is checked. If you want to move the
focus to another item, and interact with it, just go round this loop

Some time ago, when I
right-clicked on the OneDrive For Business icon in the systray of my windows
10 computer, I could open the Settings dialog box, then hit the “Choose
folders” button. In the Choose folders dialog box, I could select/deselect
the folders I wanted to synchronize on my local disk.
The folders were presented to
me as a tree view. However, I don’t know how long ago this tree view is not
rendered anymore by Jaws 2020.
I tried to work around this
problem with an alternate screen reader. This other screen reader also
renders the tree view as apparently empty. With this alternate screen
reader, another navigation mode they call “object navigation” I can see the
top folders of my OneDrive For Business space but it is quite uneasy to
select/deselect them. In addition, I cannot figure out how to expand one
element of the tree view, in other words, a folder in which I’d like to sync
subfolders only, even though the screen reader says it is “collapsed”.
Does anyone know of another
accessible way to synchronize some parts only of a OneDrive For Business
Many thanks in advance. Have
a nice day. Chris D
