Accessible Document Conversion

What is Sensus Access?

Developed to 'ensure access for all,' Sensus Access is a one-stop document converter, which allows students, staff, and faculty to convert documents and alternate media into a variety of formats. This includes audio books, braille, e-books and more. Sensus Access also allows individuals to translate work from one language into another, as well as to make inaccessible documents such as image files, certain PDFs, and PowerPoint into more accessible formats. Through Sensus Access, individuals can feel empowered to be self-sufficient and develop agency when it comes to their own learning.
