The Tasmanian Government and disability

For more information about how the Tasmanian Government is improving access to information and services for people with disability, read the Tasmanian Government Disability Framework for Action.

Each Government agency is required, as part of its strategic and business planning, to prepare a Disability Action Plan (DAP) 2018-2021 that documents the way in which the commitments specified in Accessible Island will be met. You can view TasTAFE’s Disability Action Plan 2018-2021 here.

Access via mobiles or tablet computers

The Department’s Internet (and Intranet for staff) will work on tablet computers such as an iPad. At present mobile access uses the internet browser and may be too small to read or navigate on some phones.

PDFs can be displayed in PDF viewers such as iBooks on the iPad.

PDF forms require specific apps such as the free Adobe Reader app for iPad or Android. Complex forms require more advanced apps such as PDF Expert for the iPad.
