How can I convert files into different formats?


​You can do this using SensusAccess, a web-based tool which allows Leeds Beckett students and staff to automatically convert files into a range of different formats, including Microsoft Word, PDF, audio books (MP3 and DAISY), eBooks (EPUB, EPUB3 and Mobi for Kindle) and digital Braille.

The service is useful for converting inaccessible documents such as image-only PDF files, JPG images and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations into more accessible formats. 

For more information and to use SensusAccess, please see the Accessible Resources page of the Library website.
