What is SensusAccess?
Coming Winter Term, 2024
SensusAccess aims to empower students with disabilities, promote independence and self-sufficiency, and support inclusive education. SensusAccess is integrated with Canvas, providing faculty and students with fully automated document conversion and remediation capabilities right at their fingertips.
SensusAccess enable people with disabilities to easily convert documents into alternate and more accessible formats, whenever and wherever these are needed.
SensusAccess makes conversion of course material (such as textbooks, journal articles, links to optional readings, lecture notes, presentations, hand-outs, exercises and assignments) into audio books, Braille, digital large-print, e-books and other accessible formats available directly from within Modules, Files, Assignments, Discussions, Pages and Quizzes. Converted documents can be downloaded directly or delivered to the registered email address of the user.
To try SensusAccess yourself, visit CASS's standalone website, which is available now and can be used with documents in Gradescope, Piazza, and other Caltech-licensed educational technology tools.
