SensusAccess - document conversion

Convert your media files into a wide range of accessible and alternate formats to suit your needs.

SensusAccess is a simple to use, self-service technology that enables you to convert lectures slides or notes, images of text and much more into a wide range of formats.

For example, you can convert:

  • a journal article into an audio MP3 file
  • an image of text such as a scanned PDF into a more accessible format such as a Microsoft Word or Excel document
  • lecture notes into contracted and uncontracted digital Braille
  • a Microsoft Word file into a DAISY talking book or e-book

How does it work?

You can upload a file, enter text into an open field or provide a URL of a webpage. You then select the desired format of your file and SensusAccess will email you the converted file as an attachment or provide a link to download if it’s a large file.

For more information about SensusAccess and its capabilities, you can watch an introductory video or read the FAQs on their website. SensusAccess has also created an e-learning course about how to use the product and the advanced features.
