30 November 2010

Widget for BBC Ceefax service.

Overview

Ceefax (phonetic for "See Facts") is the BBC's teletext information service. Teletext is an information retrieval service provided by television broadcast companies. Teletext pages can be viewed on television sets with suitable decoders. They offer a range of text-based information, usually including national, international and sporting news, weather and TV schedules.

This widget will let you view Ceefax at any time using Dashboard. You do not need a TV but you will need Mac OS 10.4 or better and an Internet connection. Limited, unsupported functionality under Mac OS 10.3.9 requires Amnesty Widget Browser.

The link from MacUpdate no longer works. I've found that this excellent widget has a new home, here: http://www.gingerbeardman.com/ceefaxviewer/ The latest version works fine for me post-digital switchover, and now represents my only way of seeing original Teletext. And the original service is so much better than the pathetic new version provided with digital channels, which is lightweight and useless.

This is quite a nice widget but it suffers from the input problems that have plagued others. You seem to get about 2 levels of click with this widget, where afterwards it will simply stop responding to clicking on numbers for some reason. Either that or it only lets you click on numbers for the main news page and subsequent page. Occasionally when you launch the widget it just won't respond to clicks at all. And also I have just noticed with this new version that clicking the info button to spin the widget round then clicking done effectively renders the widget dead for that instance and it will no longer respond to any clicks at all (and the Ceefax logo gets messed up as well) This is an interesting and nice looking widget as I say, but it's either just not there yet or it is suffering from existing user input bugs in Dashboard (10.4.1) that are not the author's fault.
