"TeleText" vs "TellaText"

I'm working on an android app for the visually impaired, as requested by my father. However, he wants it called "TeleText". Whereas I strongly suggest "TellaText"

I actually have to go with "TellaText" since the alternative is taken. But I'm curious as to what the rest of you think

Teletext for me will always be the old text-based bulletin board type thing that was available on tv sets back in the UK when I was a kid. Anything that wasn't similar would seem to me like a very odd use of the name.


Best of luck with TellaText!
