This model is based on printed texts in the Roman-type fonts that were used in the Low Countries, during the late 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th century. Some pages may have contained (properly) transcribed Gothic font; as well as French or Latin texts have been included to ensure the (more or less) proper transcription of words in those languages when occuring. The type of sources used for this model, are books of ordinances, which contained the norms (‘laws’) at the time. About 80000 words had been trained and the CER on the validation set is 1.17%. This model has been the result of one of the KB National Library of the Netherlands Researcher-in-Residence position 2019. The project was called ‘Entangled Histories’.
