Svenska tidningar 1818–1870 contains a selection of digitized versions of Swedish newspapers from 1818 to 1870. It is part of the so called Kubhist corpus which was digitized at Kungliga biblioteket (KB). This particular subset contains a selection of newspapers from 1818-1870. More specifically, one randomly selected newspaper from each year and two pages -- the second and fourth -- from each newspaper.
The material provided here was automatically processed using advanced document layout analysis where each segment in the digitized page was framed and numbered. Each segment was processed with Abbyy FineReader version 11 and was manually transcribed by a transcription company who specializes in double-keying.
It was produced as a part of the project Evaluation and refinement of an enhanced OCR-process for mass digitisation financed by RJ (dnr IN18-0940:1) for the period of 2019-2020.
