Accessibility and Inclusion

Sensus advises on IT-accessibility and accessible web design, performs accessibility audits and conducts national and international accessibility surveys.

The Sensus accessibility services are based on internationally recognised standards and guidelines, including the accessibility guidelines published by the W3C. The W3C accessibility guidelines also form the foundation for the official Danish accessibility requirements.

Sensus contributes to the standardisation efforts and offer both public and bespoke training courses on accessibility and accessible design. Sensus also produces material in alternative, accessible formats such as audio, Braille and large print, including text, illustrations, labels and signs.

Sensus is a founder member of the European eAccess+ network. With financial support from the European Commission, the purpose of the eAccess+ network is to improve the implementation of eAccessibility throughout Europe.

Digital Libraries and Alternate Media

Sensus develops innovative technologies that support inclusion of people with special needs in mainstream education, on the labour market and in society as a whole. We call these inclusion technologies. For more than 25 years, Sensus has fostered a wide range of solutions including the award-winning RoboBraille service that converts documents into digital Braille, MP3 files, structured audio books, e-books and other accessible formats.

Other technologies include SensusAccess, a self-service alternate media solution for students and facilty at academic institutions; SensusLibrary, a digital library for alternate media; SensusBraille, a multi-lingual Braille transcription and formatting library; SensusAutoBraille, a single-source Braille publication solution for repurposing Daisy documents into contracted, hyphenated, multi-volume Braille books; and VI Reader, an ebook reader for tablet computers that supports the individual needs of people with low vision, dyslexia or poor reading skills.

Sensus' mission is to contribute towards an accessible and inclusive information society.

Professional Services

Sensus advises on use and development of technologies for people with special needs. As such, Sensus can develop and write requirements specification, conduct public tenders, manage projects, conduct market surveys and other research assignmnts, and help identify funding opportunities.

Sensus furthermore advises on Braille production and production of material in other alternate formats, including Braille on pharmaceutical packaging material and patient information leaflets in alternate formats. Sensus can also produce and verify the quality of material in Braille and other alternate formats.
