Listen as you travel

If you'd find it easier to listen to documents on the move rather than reading them, we have software which can convert docs for you.
SensusAccess is a self-service, cloud-based system which allows you to convert files, images, webpages or free text, into an alternative, accessible format for personal use. You can convert most types of files into an alternative format, including a PDF image file into an accessible PDF, and also combine several files into a single file.
