Oracle Social Network is only available within the Oracle Cloud.

  • For users who have the Oracle Social Network daily digest and notifications sent via e-mail, the links to Conversations will open in the Oracle Social Network web client. In order to access these Conversations, users must use the Oracle Social Network Add-in for Outlook or the Oracle Social Network Desktop Client and "Search" to find the Conversation by name.


For the Oracle Social Network Add-in for Outlook client to be accessible:

  1. The assistive technology package must allow for the reading of tooltips. It is recommended to set the preference for the verbosity level to read tooltips.
  2. Set the message display to compact view in the Outlook Add-in by doing the following:
  • Open the Settings menu at the bottom of the add-in panel.
  • Select Manage and then select Display Messages in Full View.

The Oracle Social Network Help Center provides additional information on how to make the Outlook client accessible.

Oracle Social Network Administration Console provides accessibility modes for screen reader, high contrast colors and large fonts that can be set from the "Accessibility" dialog in the product.

No configuration changes are required to make either the Oracle Social Network Desktop Client or the Social Bar clients accessible.
