Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Reading a bar code in a portable document format (PDF)
document is a simple procedure. Some newer phones come with smart barcode
scanners, and you can scan the Internet to buy. A barcode is a series of lines
of code that identifies a product. When you print the document with a single
piece of technology, you can read a barcode in a PDF document.
1. Open the PDF document. Adobe Reader PDF reader is the
most common. If you do not have Adobe, download the latest version of the
company's website for free download (see Resources).
2. Select "File" drop-down box to the left of
Adobe. Select "Print" and then "OK".
3. Set the bar code scanner. Jumping the gun and a
horizontal red line is designed with the focus of the scanner. Move the line
through the barcode printed on the document until the scanner beeps. Release
the trigger and see the screen on the back of the scanner, which will give you
the information encoded in bar code.
4. Download a barcode scanning application for your smart
phone if you do not want a handheld scanner. Most bar code applications are
free. Open the program and point the camera at the barcode in the PDF. Wait
until the camera for a snapshot of the barcode will not make up the barcode in
the light of the entire camera to take. The program will decode the barcode and
display the results.
