I'm a little new to AWS's CLI, though I've used AWS in other ways for a long time.
I'm playing with Textract and want to submit a file locally, not from S3. Supposedly this can be done, possibly by base64 encoding somehow... but I haven't been able to find a good example.
I already have an AWS account and an IAM role with the correct permissions and a configured CLI. I'm running Ubuntu 16 at the moment (I can upgrade to 18 if needed) with Python3. Note that not all versions of the CLI have Textract yet - particularly the versions in the APT repositories; hence the reason I installed it from pip per the instruction on the AWS CLI GitHub repo.
I just need a sample command to submit a local JPG file and get back the OCR data in JSON format. This project might just be one line of code! I've spent two hours on it already and figured it was worth a few dollars for someone with more experience to just knock it out.
Lots of Freelancers try to race to reply quickly without actually reading my project description. Please show me that you carefully considered this project by making the word "stegosaurus" the first word of your reply... this way I can ignore the people who are cheating :)
