Post OCR request to server

Post by Peter@multidesk.se » Wed Dec 02, 2015 11:38 am

Can anyone help me?
I try to send a jpg file to "http://api.ocrapiservice.com/1.0/rest/ocr" for OCR reading. I use the following code but I get "Error 400 Bad Request" all the time.
Now I have tried everything, and find myself just scroll up and down in the code at random, evidently hoping that the error will correct itself.

I have used similar code to post pictures from my iOS device, or from any platform, in fact, to my own server and that works just fine.
But in that case, I have the set the parameters I want to use my self, so that it is significantly easier.

What have I missed?
