Web Accessibility Presentations
Graham Armfield is an experienced web accessibility professional. As well advising our clients on accessibility and carrying out accessibility testing, he also likes to share his knowledge with others.
As well as writing blogs and other articles on web accessibility, Graham also gives many presentations on the subject. He can often be found at meetups and conferences – both large and small – spreading the word on web accessibility.
His background in corporate IT has given Graham the ability to pitch his presentations at a variety of levels. He can deliver high level business case presentations to management, and more technical presentations for user interface designers and developers.

Upcoming speaking events
Currently Graham doesn’t have any public speaking events booked, but he’s hoping to present on accessibility at WordCamp London 2016 in April, and WordCamp Europe in June.
As well as the presentation subjects mentioned above, Graham is writing a presentation on building accessible accordions for your website. Widgets like accordions and tab panels are used extensively in websites and although they are easy to build using scripting libraries like jQuery, it’s not so easy to the accessibility right. Graham’s new presentation will show you how, and form an introduction to ARIA – a series of attributes that can help make scripted widgets accessible for everyone.
