Document Conversion

UCI's document conversion service processes your digital files to create a range of alternative formats, including digital Braille, audio file, and e-books. This service, provided by SensusAccess, also supports a variety of languages to provide a helpful solution to otherwise inaccessible formats, such as image-only files. UCI Document Management is proud to partner with the Disability Services Center to expand UCI's access to inclusive technology.
