Dr Hollier is a well-known international expert and his presentation will cover a wide range of access technology following the convention theme of “Looking Forward Looking Back - Celebrating 40 Years of Achievement.”

His journey through achievements will start with an insight into the origins of screen reader technology from the early 1980s. It will be bookended by the latest fad in access which is wearable technology and progress to audio description in Australia and around the world.

The BCA convention is on the 10th and 11th of October at the Perth Mercure hotel in the CBD.
