Minitel emulation

This is a good opportunity for microcomputer owners. Now that databases are proliferating, it may be interesting to use the microcomputer as a terminal that is used to query these databases, i.e. emulate the miniter. This is neither difficult nor expensive. Simply connect a modem to the microcomputer.

If you have a MINITEL terminal, you can access any information from the databases, not only that, but also the processing of texts or any other program that we usually use on the microcomputer. To make these queries, simply make a phone call. The information we receive from the database can also be saved to a disk.

The association UZEI, for example, has already created the database EUSKALTERM, in which you can consult all the words and information of the dictionaries that have worked. As you can see, they have offered us a perfect way to resolve our doubts about Basque terminology.
