How to use Cloud OCR SDK with Postman

 

Quick start guide on how to use CLOUD OCR SDK to recognize a simple image and get a result. 
 
First, you need to register on https://cloud.ocrsdk.com 
 
On the main page press the “ADD NEW APPLICATION” button and create a new application. 
 
Once, the application is created, the application password will be generated automatically and send to your email.

1) Open Postman 

2) Create a new Tab:
