Hi,

Jayprakash from IndicTechCom has developed a tool to OCR by using Google
Drive API -  https://tools.wmflabs.org/indic-ocr/

The tool can be accessed in Wikisources by loading this js -
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Indic-TechCom/Script/IndicOCR.js

The tool was developed as Google OCR by Cloud Vision API was not supporting
Malayalam, Telugu, Oriya, Gujarati and Kannada. So, the OCR button created
by Community tech was not working for this language Wikisources. The new
button will support these languages as well all other languages supported
by Google Drive API

Also, by introduction of this tool, we now have 4 options to OCR in
Wikisource. :-)

Regards,
Bodhisattwa
