As this screen shot shows, the human-readable portion is built into the glyphs (individual letters and numbers)Specimen SheetYou cannot have one without the other.

However, depending on the software that you use to display and print the barcodes, you could hide the human readable parts of the font if you wanted to.

What you need to do is to make a rectangular shape, a box in the color of the background (white?) to cover the letters. It would work in almost any application, Word, Excel, InDesign, Illustrator...

If however you have irregular background you would have to edit the font itself to cut out the letters. Then again, if you are going to use the barcode to be read by a scanner the background has to be in one color anyway.

Editing a font can be tedious and means paid hours.
