+Kragen Sitaker did amazing work back in 2005/2006 'liberating' the OED first
+edition which is now (mostly) in the public domain and He posted up fairly
+good scans of volumes 1-6 on archive.org (see , ).
+However at the time he was unable to do much on the OCR front (no doubt because
+of the poor performance of open source OCR, particularly on such a complex text
+as the OED which has lots of non-standard english and font changes). With the
+better open source OCR engine it would be possible to convert the OED back into
+text and perhaps wikify it to allow for gradual proof-editing and correction.
