CONVERT is a self-service, computer-automated document conversion tool that allows students, faculty, and staff to convert documents into a variety of alternative formats including audiobooks, e-books, and digital Braille. The service can also be used to convert image-only PDF files or scanned images into more accessible formats.

Individuals upload files through a Web interface and select from a variety of output options, notification of a completed conversion is made via e-mail. Currently, the CONVERT platform will only support requests from individuals using a valid Santa Clara University e-mail address. Please note - the CONVERT platform removes processed files after several days.


The quality of the conversion is dependent upon the quality of the original document. Poor quality documents (marked up, very grainy, scanned crooked), will most likely result in poor quality conversions.

Make sure the file you wish to convert is saved on your computer prior to uploading into SensusAccess.

Languages supported by SensusAccess are represented by the country flags included in the document conversion box.
