I'm guessing it's "A/B" key on (TV) remote control, e.g. to switch between
two input sources


probably DVD or set-top-box remote control key to switch
between alternate video streams (video viewing angle / camera position)


might be used on TV remote control for "channel list"

these are really application-defined multi-purpose keys,
not just limited to teletext; present on every European
TV or set-top-box remote control
