videotex - Computer Definition
The first attempts at interactive information delivery for shopping, banking, news, etc. Many trials were made, but it never caught on in the U.S. and was not very successful anywhere except in France (see Minitel). Videotex uses a TV set-top box and keyboard. Data are delivered by phone line and stored in the box as predefined frames with limited graphics that are retrieved by menu.
