This is a dataset of publically available Tanzania Hansard documents, in Kiswahili. It contains 2735 png images of pages from pdf documents, and text files containing transcripts obtained from the OCR tool tesseract-ocr. The images are obtained via scanning pdf files using imagemagick. Its intended use is in how improvements to language/word sequence modeling can improve OCR in a low-resource setting, and as a record of the accuracy of pre-existing OCR tools that use language models before any other methods are applied.
