I was on my way of writing down the German sample text when I notized that there were many strange typos (?) in the text.
So I got unsure, whether you wanted me to write it down directly, as it was given by you (wrong) or whether I should write it down correctly spelled.
Very probably, many Germans will read over some of the typos and will write down the correct word, thus not matching your original.

The typos and its (guessed(?))corresponding correct value:
Ursprüng->Ursprung (?)

1-408-329-576 -> If this is intended for telephone number recognition, please note that in Germany, telephone numbers are most commonly written as (01234)56789 or 01234/56789

Kind regards

We selected words for these texts to optimize document size vs representation of the full set of characters in a more uniform way. Thus some of the words' spellings are not of the most frequent variety met in the language. The fact that they prompt a writer to pause and re-read the word is even of a desired consequence -- we mean those texts for training, and slower written text usually is of higher legibility.
But there is no harm done if some word will end up being 'corrected' in the resulting handwriting -- we will account for that in the processing later.
Thank you for taking time to contribute to our collection and for your feedback!
