I have a copy typing / data entry task that I need help with.
I'm working on a side project to recreate the soundscape of early radio broadcasting in the 1920s. The BBC ran a column called "which station was that" that has a ton of data about what listeners were hearing on their radio sets.
I have taken hi-res photographs of these columns and would like to turn them into a digital format which I can use to create data visualizations.
Each page consists of several dozen brief entries, all following the same structure. For example:
"Coils (Kettering): If French, PTT Lille, which was relaying dance music from the Lilliana Dance Hall at that time."
This means that a listener by the name Coils (who lives in Kettering) heard a radio programme broadcast from Lille.
I'd like all of the text organized into a table with the columns listener name, listener place, text, and station place.
See the attached files Input and Output for an example of what the scans look like and what I'd like the table to look like.
Scope of Work:
I currently have 46 documents to digitize, each containing somewhere between 500 and 1500 words. If we work well together and you can make an attractive quote, I will go back to the archives and take more scans, and can imagine this easily growing into a job with 250 more pages to digitize.
