[access-uk] Re: bar code readers

Colin,

    That sounds really interesting, but I have a quick question if you've
used one of these devices: How easy is it to locate the bar code on a
purchased item?

    I suppose the question is how much area is covered with a sweep of the
bar code reader and how accurate is it in detecting bar codes within that
area? I have visions of being there for 10 minutes trying to find the bar
code on a tin of beans!



    Sounds like a marvellous bit of kit though I have a Voila!, which is
great, but restricted to only a couple of hundred bar code labels, which is
fine for the tins cupboard, but not much use for a CD collection.

Cheers,
Tink.
