Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

undefined image-annotator::error in mlwiki (google ocr button). Screen-shot. Need some helps to fix it.

Cloud Vision API does not support Kannada, Malayalam, Odia, Gujarati, Telugu language

Event Timeline

Malayalam is not currently supported by this tool, sadly! But work is being done to change this. For now, the gadget should be disabled on Malayalam Wikisource.

okey. now only saw this edit. Thanks. But Any chance to fix it ?

Yeah, sorry about that! :( And I've just added another note to that page too, specifically listing Malayalam, Telugu, Oriya, Gujrati, and Kannada.

Yes it is, e.g. http://tools.wmflabs.org/ws-google-ocr/index.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fupload.wikimedia.org%2Fwikipedia%2Fcommons%2Fthumb%2F9%2F96%2FBikalpa_Biswa.pdf%2Fpage236-800px-Bikalpa_Biswa.pdf.jpg&lang=or
("image-annotator::error(12): Image processing error!" is Google's very helpful phrase that means "nah we don't support this language").

It looks like Google has fixed the issue on their end and now the Google OCR tool works fine for Kannada, Malayalam, Odia, Gujarati, and Telugu!
