  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  7. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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

  16. Since your site maintenance yesterday, I cannot order my results to earliest first

    Since your site maintenance yesterday afternoon, I cannot order results to earliest first, which is frustrating.
    If I try, the no results page appears.

    I've just signed up in order to scan inter alia the Southwark and Bermondsey Recorder (subtitled the South London Gazette) It does not seem to be digitised. Am I right?

  18. Multiple Coloured Flags

    I would like the ability to define the colour used for the flag when an item is added to a folder. I could then flag items to be done in one colour and items done with another. This would help me keep track of where I am.

  19. Ability to select part of a page to save

    If you want to save a specific article, it would helpful if you could select just that part of the page to save. By enlarging the relevant section on screen and then saving just that part, the quality of the image is much better than if you save the whole page and then try to edit the resultant pdf file. I have tried making screen clips using OneNote and this is reasonably successful, but you end up with several individual files and these need to be stitched together to make on file.

  20. have the option for people to earn more 'free' articles for doing the work of rewriting the gibberish that often comes up in the auto scan

    It would be great if you had an option for people to 'earn' more free access for doing the work of re-transcribing the scanned articles, many of which are not just slightly inaccurate but total gibberish.

    You could have an easy system (they do this on Wikipedia, for instance) where there is a list of articles that need to be properly transcribed and users just go through them to earn 'points' that can be converted into access. (So, for e.g. transcribe 3 articles, get access to 3 more pages etc). You would just need to check the first few to…
