    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;The National Archives of the Netherlands and the Noord-Hollands Archief started a collaboration with the Transkribus HTR (Handwritten Text Recognition) platform in order to semi automatically transcribe 2 million pages of old Dutch texts. The archives are 17th and 18th century material from the Dutch East-Asia Company (VOC) and 19th century notarial deeds from the city of Haarlem.&lt;br&gt;
In order to train the HTR software, human made transciptions had to be made.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;These datasets contain the scans (.jpg images) with the transcriptions in ALTO xml format (word level) that have been made in order to train the HTR-model for text recognition.&lt;br&gt;
&lt;br&gt;
The first set contains scans and transcriptions from the Verenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie (VOC) archive, it&amp;#39;s inventory can be found here:&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="http://www.gahetna.nl/archievenoverzicht/pdf/NL-HaNA_1.04.02.ead.pdf"&gt;http://www.gahetna.nl/archievenoverzicht/pdf/NL-HaNA_1.04.02.ead.pdf&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Inventory numbers&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br&gt;
The transcipts are samples of the following inventory numbers: 7527-9540&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Country/place&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br&gt;
Dutch Indies (modern day Indonesia) / Batavia&amp;nbsp;(modern day Jakarta)&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Language&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br&gt;
Dutch&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Number of transcriptions&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br&gt;
4735&amp;nbsp;(mostly split)&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;-------------------------------------------------------------&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The second set contains scans and transcriptions from the Notarial deeds of Haarlem, it&amp;#39;s inventories can be found here:&lt;br&gt;
&lt;a href="https://noord-hollandsarchief.nl/bronnen/archieven?mivast=236&amp;amp;mizig=210&amp;amp;miadt=236&amp;amp;micode=1972&amp;amp;milang=nl&amp;amp;miview=inv2"&gt;https://noord-hollandsarchief.nl/bronnen/archieven?mivast=236&amp;amp;mizig=210&amp;amp;miadt=236&amp;amp;micode=1972&amp;amp;milang=nl&amp;amp;miview=inv2&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br&gt;
&lt;a href="https://noord-hollandsarchief.nl/bronnen/archieven?mivast=236&amp;amp;mizig=210&amp;amp;miadt=236&amp;amp;micode=1617&amp;amp;milang=nl&amp;amp;miview=inv2"&gt;https://noord-hollandsarchief.nl/bronnen/archieven?mivast=236&amp;amp;mizig=210&amp;amp;miadt=236&amp;amp;micode=1617&amp;amp;milang=nl&amp;amp;miview=inv2&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;This set also contains scans and transcriptions from other notarial archives, from&amp;nbsp;Dutch provinces. They are however few in number.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Inventory numbers&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br&gt;
The transcipts are samples of the following inventory numbers: 1617_1593&amp;nbsp;until 1617_1805 and 1972_5&amp;nbsp;until 1972_813&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Country/place&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br&gt;
The Netherlands&amp;nbsp;/ Haarlem&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Language&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br&gt;
Dutch and sometimes French&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Number of transcriptions&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br&gt;
1615&amp;nbsp;(mostly spread)&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;-------------------------------------------------------------&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The following HTR model was used for recognition: &amp;quot;IJsberg&amp;quot;. More information about the model van be found here:&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="https://transkribus.eu/wiki/images/d/d6/Public_Models_in_Transkribus.pdf"&gt;https://transkribus.eu/wiki/images/d/d6/Public_Models_in_Transkribus.pdf&lt;/a&gt;. See the chapter &amp;quot;Dutch Handwriting&amp;quot;.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;-------------------------------------------------------------&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Update: upon request, PageXML files of the transcriptions have been added and are seperately downloadable.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Version 3.0: The first HTR results from the VOC-collection are available in .txt format,&amp;nbsp;Inventory numbers 7527-9540.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Version 3.1: The HTR results from the VOC-collection are also available in PAGE xml format.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Version 4.0: About 30 missing inventory numbers have been added to the VOC transcriptions. The HTR results of the&amp;nbsp;Notarial Deeds from the NHA archives have been added.
