some keyboards have a female keyboard port on the side. you will plug
the handheld barcode reader there. think "daisy chain".

same is true with magnetic strip readers/swipers. you attach it to your
ps/2 keyboard port, plug your keyboard on the swiper, walahh, youre hot!
again, think "daisy chain."

AFAIK, these devices speak the "language" of keyboards. the operating
system doesnt even have to know that there is a barcode reader or

visit an ACA video shop near you. maybe you can see one in action there.
