How to scan codes with a handheld PDA

To scan a barcode, first find the barcode. You can find them on packaging, printed on products, or even on the internet. If the barcode is too small to see, you can magnify it by using handheld PDA device’s zoom feature.

Once you’ve located the barcode, open the handheld barcode scanner’s camera and point it at the code. The photo will be taken and displayed on your handheld device’s screen. You will now need to position the handheld PDA device so that the camera is pointed at the code and focus it so that the barcode is in focus. Once you’ve done this, tap the screen once to take the photo.
