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.

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
