SensusAccess - convert your documents into accessible formats

The library now provides SensusAccess a self-service cloud based system which allows print impaired students and staff to automatically convert copyright documents into a range of alternate media including audio, e-books and digital braille. It can also be used to convert inaccessible documents such as image-only PDF files, JPG pictures and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations. You can make an accessible copy if you own the copyright (e.g. it's your own work), you have permission from the copyright owner, copyright has expired or you have a print disability.

Although principally aimed at those users with a print impairment it has wider reaching advantages for everyone. All students and staff may also convert documents produced by the University of Liverpool in relation to course work and university activities, e.g. module hand-outs, course packs, lecture notes, without prior permission from the University. This does not include published works or material where the copyright owner is not the University unless you have a print disability.
