SensusAccess – create accessible and inclusive documents in minutes
SensusAccess provides inclusion technology which allows students and staff to automatically convert documents into a range of alternate media including audio books (MP3 and DAISY), e-books (EPUB, EPUB3 and Mobi) and digital Braille.

SensusAccess can also be used to convert inaccessible documents such as image-only PDF files, JPG pictures and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations into suitable accessible formats.

Further information can be found on the DDS website.
