Technology Resources for Students
Students, staff and faculty, regardless of if they are approved through our office, will have the ability to use this service to change the format of files they use in their college experience. This service allows students to transfer between inaccessible and accessible formats such as turning scanned PDFs into accessible PDFs, Word documents or even MP3s. The instructions on how to use SensusAccess are straightforward, but will rely on the student providing a "@tufts.edu" email address.
Please follow the SensusAccess Portal link to be redirected to the page to upload files.
