Convert documents into a format that you need with SensusAccess
SensusAccess is provided by Aston University to enable students and staff to convert documents into a wide range of alternative media.
It is an automated document conversion service that will help enable you to convert your readings, slides and lecture notes into formats that work best for you. For example you could convert an image only PDF or JPEG file to a word document, MP3 file or e-book.
SensusAccess is great for supporting different learning styles, and for providing help when reading text in a foreign language.
SensusAccess is entirely automated and the documents you submit to the service are automatically deleted once they have been converted. You do not need to worry about keeping your privacy as SensusAccess does not store personal information.
