NewsEye / READ AS training dataset from Austrian Newspapers (19th, early 20th C.)
The dataset comprises Austrian newspaper pages from 19th and early 20th century with carefully annotated text. The page images were provided by the Austrian National Library and comprise 158 pages (training set). The data are formed according to the PAGE format (cf. Cf. https://github.com/PRImA-Research-Lab/PAGE-XML/) and were produced with the Transkribus platform with support of the NewsEye and the READ project.
