Hi Sam,

The Google OCR button and the tool
<https://tools.wmflabs.org/ws-google-ocr/> is giving 500 internal server
error output from today, although the Cloud Vision API is working fine
<https://cloud.google.com/vision/docs/drag-and-drop>.

We have reported in phabricator here
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T190216>. It would be great for us if
you please look into this matter urgently as all our options are suddenly
ceasing to work.

The error message could be more helpful, but basically this is because
there's a limit on the size of images that can be sent to the Cloud
Vision API.
With a smaller version of the same image, it is working:

I think this is a different error to the one in
