Use a screen reader to sync OneDrive for Business in Mac

It’s easy to keep the OneDrive folder on your Mac in sync with OneDrive for Business in the cloud.

  1. If you aren’t already signed in, go to the Office 365 page and sign in to your Microsoft account.

  2. Tab until you hear “Go to OneDrive for Business,” and then press Return.

  3. Tab until you hear “New.” The focus is on Files view.

  4. Press the Right Arrow key until you hear “Sync.”

  5. To open the Sync dialog, press Return. You hear “Sync this library to your device for easy access.”

  6. Tab until you hear “Sync Now,” and then press Return. OneDrive synchronizes your files.

Note: To change which folders in your OneDrive that you sync on your Mac, in your OneDrive app, choose Preferences. OneDrive syncs folders (not individual files), and, to be included in a sync, a folder must be one that you own rather than one that is shared with you. For more information, see OneDrive for Mac: FAQ.
