Hausa Online

Learning Hausa (and other less commonly taught languages) using the Internet

Hausa texts found in the Internet Archive

Posted by hausaonline on Friday, November 27, 2009

The Internet Archive (IA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building and maintaining a free and openly accessible online digital library. This library includes texts, audio, moving images, and software as well as archived web pages.

I have searched the archive for Hausa documents  and found – among other materials  – the following documents:

As far as I know, these texts are now in the public domain, i.e. their copyright has expired because the author of the texts has died more than 70 years ago.

All these materials can be downloaded. They are mostly PDF files containing the images of scanned pages which have then been converted to text using optical character recognition. Of course, during this process many mistakes can happen, but the texts can still be used for further study and processing.

I am planning to edit some of the old Hausa texts and publish them on this blog, so be on the lookout!

      Thank you for this comment. Sorry the Tabs and other things haven’t been translated into Hausa. Part of this I could do, part is not under my control, but done by the blog system (WordPress).
