  5. Blocks of missing test on a page

    I have come across missing data (Liverpool Echo 23 Dec 1963) where there are large parts of the Births Marriages and Deaths which have not been scanned/uploaded. If you had a link to report missing data, this would help you to identify if more work was needed.

  6. Wrong Date

    How do I notify BNA when I found a scan which is indexed with the wrong date? I came across one which is indexed as 2 June 1970 when the actual scan is of the same paper but 2 June 1969.

  7. Create higher resolution PDF's

    The PDF's are unreadable once downloaded. What's the use of having a download button if they can't be read? I can't be that hard to create a medium resolution version of a newspaper. Request was already done in 2015.

  12. Wakefield Free Press

    I would like to search and reproduce images from Wakefield Free Press, but I didn't see any copyright details or fees for that publication?

  14. Northern editions

    I love going through the Sunday papers for the sporting news especially football match reports. Would be nice to see some Northern editions added as all the current ones are london based.

  15. use spell check for old newspaper scans

    Most words are not read correctly in the oldest newspapers, so a word search is often nearly hopeless, but perhaps a spell check could help, obviously not for proper nouns that start with a capital letter.

  16. Change f to s in old newspapers

    You will be aware that old newsprint always wrote most letter s as an f , which mafes it difficult to fearch for certain wordf. Maybe your ocr could convert all f to s for papers of those dates. The letter s is much more common than f so this would correct more mistakes than it makes.

  17. Please can we have the Sutton Coldfield News and Observer digitised.

    Besides the two main local newspapers in Sutton Coldfield there was a short lived Streetly News.

  18. Option to switch 'highlight terms' off per-user

    It would be lovely to be able to have the blue 'highlight' boxes around search terms on images turned OFF by default.

    You could add this as a setting so users could choose if they want it or not.

  19. Improve filtering

    It would be useful if could not only filter to a a particular newspaper but also to exclude a particular newspaper or newspaper eg searching I've been doing has been finding a lot of irrelevant hits in sporting titles

  20. Lots Need Re-Scanning

    Lots of the newspapers need re-scanning, particularly looking at Cambridge Chronicle, the OCR is terrible with some, the originals just need lightening to make them easier for you to OCR
