I have 245 pages (90,000 words) of OCRed documents that need manual correction. I will provide the PDF and the Word documents. It is broken down into ten pieces so it can be easier distributed to a team. It's not difficult, I've been doing it myself but don't have as much time to work on this as I did.

Detailed instructions:

Nearly every problematic area will be highlighted in blue (this was done automatically by the OCR software, ABBYY Finereader 11, which I spent a while training to improve accuracy). The most frequent correction needed seems to be the removal of unnecessary spaces, e.g. a word will read "un nec essa ry"). Occasionally a hyphen (-) will need to be converted to an em dash (-), based on the length in the original PDF. Some letters will need accent marks added, and some of the pages will need Greek characters entered if the OCR did not read them correctly. Spelling errors should not be corrected, the word should read exactly as it is in the original PDF....
