Free Online Conversion Tool: SensusAccess

What is it?

SensusAccess is an online conversion tool that will allow you to convert documents from one file type to another. The most common example is uploading an image PDF, then outputting a Word document. But there are many more choices!

What does it cost?

This tool is free to anyone with a UW NetID.

How do I get to it?

Go to SensusAccess
Use the  direct link to SensusAccess to upload and convert a file.
If you prefer a TinyURL, use tinyurl.com/uw-doc-convert. Both links will direct you to the same page. You will need to sign in with your UW credentials.

Are there limitations to this service?

  • The source file needs to be of good quality in order to maximize conversion accuracy.
  • Some file outputs may require additional editing after conversion.
  • This service is intended to provide a quick temporary solution, but is not the final solution for accessibility. For faculty and staff who are creating and editing course content, please consult UW-IT Accessibility for more extensive information on how to create accessible documents in various formats.
  • Students requesting alternate materials as an accommodation, please contact Disability Resources for Students.
