Teletext and viewdata displays present a strong challenge to the information designer. The mono-spaced dot matrix characters are relatively crude in their design, and their positioning is determined by a fixed grid. The graphics facility is also somewhat crude.

The scope for typographic and spatial coding of information is therefore very limited. A Viewdata machine displayed in teletext format.

Viewdata is a Videotex implementation. It is a type of information retrieval service in which a subscriber can access a remote database via a common carrier channel, request data and receive requested data on a video display over a separate channel.

I'm always on the lookout for any surviving data relating to any viewdata and teletext services. If you have anything saved from the distant past, please get in touch.

from The Computer Book, published in Both broadcast teletext and the GPO's Prestel services are sources of a great variety of information which can be received and displayed on the television screen.

Collectively they are referred to as 'viewdata'. Teletext, or broadcast teletext, is a videotex standard for displaying text and rudimentary graphics on suitably equipped television sets. Teletext sends data in the broadcast signal, hidden in the invisible vertical blanking interval area at the top and bottom of the screen.

The teletext decoder in the television buffers this information as a series of "pages", each given a number. My Viewdata client (and it seems, also Richard Russell's) assumes once the cursor moves down from line 23 it returns to line 0. At the end of each line in the Teefax Teletext server I do VDU8,13,10 (backspace, carriage return, next line).

Newspapers are facing challenges from the new media of teletext, viewdata systems, and home computers. Teletext, which provides formated pages of text broadcast for viewing on a television screen, provides news immediately, simply, conveniently, and inexpensively.

However, it does not provide the browse and scan options of newspapers. Of greater potential impact is the development of viewdata.Viewdata, Teletext and the Rest.
