We are running something like this. Not with a HTML or REST-ful front
end, but WebDAV. The users of this service do "mass digitization". They
mount their individual WebDAV share, push scanned image files there and
read the OCR results from output files (usually not "by hand" but with
some software that manages their digitization workflow).
The actual OCR is done by an ABBYY Recognition Server, the "WebDAV front
end" including accounting is a straightforward home-brewed solution.
