question about barcode scanner and scanning an lcd screen (cell phone screen or laptop monitor)
Posted on 2015-01-07
Hi I have a usb barcode scanner that I got on amazon.com for arround $20 and it works great the only thing that I wish it did that it does not do is scan barcodes directly off of an LCD screen.
I was wondering what kind of barcode scanner would I need to be able to do that? I was watching a review on youtube and they showed two models that they suggested, one was a Motorola DS6708 and the other was a Honeywell xenon scanner. These are both 2d image scanners. So my question is will any 2d barcode scanner work? Or just certain models?
If only special models scan the screens I was wondering if anyone knows a model that is cheaper then the two I mentioned that works good? I do not need it to be wireless.
