Our group found after extensive research that, in order to fully understand how the TAB works one needs to be an insider in the TAB discourse. We discovered that the instruction booklets were difficult to understand and did not provide enough information to adequately allow us to fill in the betting cards. We found it was much easier to ask an attendant and have them give us a visual demonstration.
We also discovered that the TAB used various text types and literacy practices. Such as graphs, tables, forms and abbreviations. All of which if you weren't familiar with, would be difficult to process the information in order to be able to use the TAB successfully.
