Re: setting up imap email


In programs, the gear icon very often is identified by screen-readers as tools. 
Evidently, on the Google page, you would look for some other name.  I don't know what that name might be but it might imply that you can get to settings from there.  Maybe something like options or preferences or something else that implies a relevant category. 
I've never set Google up to be used with an external account in part because, though I have an account, I've almost never used GMail.

Subject: [nvda] setting up imap email

Hi all you Google users,


I cannot find the “gear” icon on the Google page for setting up a gmail account.


Here is the instruction that I am following:

Step 1: Enable IMAP

You can retrieve your Gmail messages with a client or device that supports IMAP, like Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail.

1. Sign in to Gmail.

2. Click the gear in the top right .

3. Select Settings.

4. Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.

5. Select Enable IMAP.

6. Click Save Changes.

Note: This setting is not available while using the basic HTML view of Gmail. To enable IMAP, use the standard view instead.


Wonderfully clear instructions! However, I am blocked at step 1! I cannot find the “gear” icon on my screen. Can anyone tell me how to do it without sighted assistance, please?


All the best
