Hi,

For last few weeks, Google OCR using Drive API has stopped working for few
Indic scripts like Bengali and Devanagari affecting Bengali, Sanskrit and
Assamese Wikisource. It's still working for other Indic scripts, I guess.

If anyone have any contact with Google, we need to know if this temporary
or any plan for major change is underway.

This is extremely important as this will drastically sooner or later affect
every Indic Wikisource projects and we have to plan accordingly.

Regards,
Bodhisattwa

Just to eliminate a potential silly cause: do all those languages use
the same API key, and are you able to verify what's the quota usage?

They do all use the same API key, yes.

There doesn't seem to be anything obvious on the API end. Request numbers are pretty low under 1 request/minute and our quota is 600 r/m.

The tool seems to be working:

Maybe it's a problem with the gadget?

Sorry, I just realised you were all talking about the *Drive* API, not the *Vision* Api! :-) I dunno anything about that.

Sam, the OCR works fine in Vision API in Bengali and other Wikisource ,
what you developed. Nothing worried. We will rewrite our python script for
running a Bot.

Update:

The OCR for Bengali using Google Drive API has stopped for pdf and djvu
files, but for jpg it is ok till now.

Shrini and Jayanta is rewriting and testing the OCR4Wikisource script to
convert the files into jpg files.

Looking forward,
Bodhisattwa
