This has all the earmarks of a combination of OCR (optical character recognition) scanning combined with text prediction in the computer. The scanning process probably went well, but the accursed text predictor chose 'wills' instead of 'walls'. The human operator missed the difference. Text predictors don't require that their choice makes any sense; it is just a stab-in-the-dark.
