ocr(spec, user, secret, host, protocol)

spec: A dictionary specifying the options for the OCR process. Supported:

- data: Actual input data, usually the buffer from file read.

- input_scheme: A string representing the scheme of input data. Supported: raw

- output_scheme: A string representing the scheme of output data. Supported: hocr, pdf

- use_cache: A boolean indicating whether to use cached results. Default: True. If cache is used, no charge

- psm: an integer indicating tesseract psm value, e.g. 12

- oem: an integer indicating tesseract oem value, e.g. 2

- lang: an array of strings indicating languages, e.g. ['eng']

(the following are considered only when the output_scheme is pdf)

- text_visible: a boolean value indicating if the recognized text is visible

- orig_visible: a boolean value indicating if the original pdf is visible

- text_color: an array of 3 floats, range from 0 to 1, indicating the rgb of desired text color, e.g. [1, 0, 0], which means red

- text_color_reflects_cl: an integer value of 1 or -1, indicating if the text (if visible) color correlates to the recognition confidence level. If -1, higher confidence means brighter color; If 1, higher confidence means darker color.

user: email of the registered user

secret: secret of the registered user (available on dashboard page after registration)

host: server url, default:

protocol: http or https, default: https
