Swedish 17th century

Free Public AI Model for Handwritten Text Recognition with Transkribus

Swedish 17th century

The model “Jaemtlands_domsagasM1+” is trained on 5946 pages (ca. 491 300 words) from court books from Jämtland county in Sweden – Jämtlands läns domsaga, from the years 1647-1688. The books are the original ones written by different local writers on location (not the copies that were written later and sent in to the royal court in Stockholm – “renoverade domböcker”). The texts are written in Swedish. The transcripts that are used are not 100% true to the original spelling. Some abbreviations are spelled out (for example r:dr = riksdaler) there are also a few remarks made in the transcripts in brackets. The CER is 6.32%.
