I suggest you go with the Google / Microsoft solution. When I used syncing solutions for my non-smart phone 12/15 years ago, they made quite a mess. If you send me the instructions off list, I will try to do them myself and then give you more specific directions. Do I remember correctly that you use both Mac and Windows? IF so let me know which oS you are most familiar with.

Madison,

          If you're talking about managing a calendar or calendars under the Google web interface, that's never been done in the Gmail interface, although you can put a calendar sidebar there.

          If you want to manage calendars under Google then, once you have logged into your Google account for any of the services, you can either activate the apps button at the top of any given service's page, find the other app you need (Calendar, in this case) and activate it or you can just paste the calendar app URL into a new tab:
https://calendar.google.com

Then you'll have to deal with all the settings specific to calendar to get the display format you want and to have the calendars you have access to either have appointments be displayed or not displayed.

All settings for a calendar or calendars for a given Google account, including who they're shared with, are handled under the Calendars interface under settings, specifically the section, Settings for my calendars.

There are multiple help pages and tutorials on using Calendar with a screen reader:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Google+Calendar+screen+reader 

The general principle here applies to any Google app:  Contacts, Calendar, Drive, Gmail, Sheets, Docs, etc., all have their own dedicated web interface where sharing for those things is managed, even when that sharing is across multiple Google accounts.  The owner for any given thing controls who else may access it, and they control that through the interface for the thing being accessed in its sharing settings.

Hi, Madison. It's possible that if you are using Standard View in Gmail on the web, instead of Basic html view, the My Calendars tab may not show up as a button. You might want to try just looking for the text words My Calendars with the CONTROL plus F command in your browser, or it may appear as one word with the M and C capitalized as follows: MyCalendars.

 

Since I don't have calendars integrated into my gmail account, I can't check this for you. I hope something about what I have shared might help you.

I'm trying to find my calendars under the calendars tab, I'm trying to subscribe my google calendar to Outlook. I have instructions, but I just can't get to the my calendars tab/button. I can get to my calendars, but I can’t get to the settings for them, only the general calendar settings. I can send the link for the instructions if that would help.

And knowing what this is will likely get you a more precise answer.  There is no way to maximize the folder tree in Gmail in the conventional sense that most of us use the term.  But there are all sorts of ways to quickly get to specific labels or messages and the Gmail search function is incredibly powerful in terms of zeroing in on the message or messages you're looking for.

I very much suggest using the basic html view, it works far better with jaws.

If you are using the standard view (where j/k move up/down the list of
messages), then pressing the left arrow button while in the list of messages
should bring up the folder list.
I’m not sure how this is done in the HTML view.
