SensusAccess – Alternative Media Made Easy

Sensus Access Notices & Flex Workshops Recordings

Sensus Acess Logo

SensusAccess offers two ways for MiraCosta faculty, classified professionals, and students to convert all kinds of documents and files into alternative and more accessible formats:

SensusAccess is available now.

  • A website that allows anyone to upload files including Word or PPT documents, scanned images, PDFs, or web pages and generate accessible alternative types of files and media, including audio, e-books, Braille, and large print. This helps meet accessibility standards and enhance inclusion by supporting diverse preferences and needs of users.
  • A Canvas integration that automatically enables conversion of files uploaded into Canvas into alternate file and media types and languages. (This replaces functionality that was previously provided in Canvas through Ally.)

Key Features

  • Automated conversion of files into a range of alternative media and file formats
  • Remediation of inaccessible documents such as image only PDFs into accessible formats
  • Language to language translation with a high degree of accuracy

For more information on SensusAccess and its use check out the SensusAccess website and one-page Canvas LTI description.

C3-2-1 Newsletter – Spring 2022 Comes to an End!

Dear Faculty,

This is my final email as Interim Joyful Teacher, and I want to thank you all for going on this journey with me. I’ve learned so much, and my greatest joy has been getting to know you all better. I hope you have time in summer to rest, reflect, recuperate, and/or take action.

Here’s my attempt to share some levity during unspeakably difficult times. I present: Summer Bingo. Each square provides a link to interesting resources and learning opportunities. Try to score a Bingo, or pick and choose words that speak to what you need in the moment. Or… just don’t 😊

Looking for archived resources, tips/tricks, and questions?

Thank You,
