SensusAccess

SensusAccess is available using this link.

SensusAccess is an e-mail and web-based service capable of automatically transforming documents into a variety of alternative formats for the visually and reading impaired.

Braille services

Transcription of documents to and from contacted and uncontracted Braille. The documents can furthermore be formatted and paginated, and delivered as ready-to-emboss files in a variety of digital Braille formats.

Audio services

Conversion into plain mp3 files and well as Daisy Talking Books, including Daisy books with spoken math.

E-book services

Documents can be converted into both EPUB and Mobi Pocket (Amazon Kindle) e-book formats. Furthermore, EPUB may be converted into Mobi Pocket and vice versa. To accommodate users with low vision, the base line of the body text in an e-book may be raised to allow for more appropriate text scaling in mainstream e-book readers.

Accessibility services

Otherwise inaccessible documents such as image files in gif, tiff, jpg, bmp, pcx, dcx, j2k, jp2, jpx, djv and image-only pdf, as well as all types of pdf files can be converted to more accessible formats including tagged pdf, doc, docx, Word xml, xls, xlsx, csv, text, rtf and html. The service furthermore supports conversion of Microsoft Office documents into tagged pdf and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations into rtf files and web-projects.

 

SensusAccess is developed jointly by Synscenter Refsnæs (the National Centre for Visually Impaired Children and Youth in Denmark) and Sensus ApS.
