These QR codes on everything... do you need a 'SmartPhone'

Resolved Question:

These QR codes on everything... do you need a 'SmartPhone' to read them, or can you scan them in on a normal flat-bed scanner for your PC to recognise? They drive me mad because they are on EVERYTHING now, I cannot read them, do I need expesive hardware to add to my PC to read these?

Hello Mark! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Yes, please try the CodeTwo QR Code Desktop Reader program at the website below.

Basically, you would scan the QR code to your computer, then open it, then use the CodeTwo QR program to select the QR code portion. The above website also contains video instructions.

If that does not work, please try another QR reader program at the website below; this programs require you have a webcam.
