Yammer is a communication tool that supports discussion and groups for discussion. Each group also supports file upload and notes.

Screen Reader Accessibility

The basic functions of Yammer are accessible to screen readers, but some screen reader testers have reported usability issues with certain advanced features. Therefore, a blind student or staff member may still need additional support. Contact the Penn State Yammer service or the Office of Disability Services if a student reports a problem.

Yammer E-mail Feed

Yammer includes the ability to send messages to a user’s e-mail. This can mitigate some issues, but note that not all content is sent directly to e-mail.

To activate feeds, users can visit their Notifications page at https://www.yammer.com/account/notifications. Note that login may be required.
