Since a while I'm working on a TV Text viewer for my Wizard. Today I finally finished a version which I can show to you.
I developed it because I have an old tv without TV Text support (yes they still exist....ah well I got it for free) (edit: I've got a new tv now :p)

Features
- Support for favorites
- Customizable homepage
- Customizable double tap action. (what to do if you tap twice on a page)
- Mouse gestures for navigating to the previous and next (sub)page.
- Support for multiple tv text sources.

It comes with a default set of favorites (my own :))

a way to see italian text?

http://www.televideo.rai.it/televideo/pub/index.jsp

useful application!
Can you provide me a textversion of the link?


Very useful! I'm loving it already and I didnt even install it yet :p

I'm trying to be not too demanding, but would it be possible to make RTL Text (http://www.rtl.nl/videotext/rtl4/pag100/01) viewable? :D
This is also an image. I need a text-only version so I can parse it. :)


I need a text-only version instead of an image. This because I parse the page and extract the pagenumbers to detect when a user taps on a pagenumber.


Swedish text is coming soon.


I found a nice website (http://teletext-online.de.vu/) containing a lot of links to tv text sources. Unfortunately a lot of them are not in text-only format and mostly they use Java... :(
