Free Scanner Decoder Software

Free Barcode Scanner ASCII String Decoder

Reveals hidden, non-printable ASCII characters and commands from keyboard emulation devices, such as USB Barcode Scanners.

It is useful in verifying commands such as FS, RS, GS, and EOT that are encoded in barcodes, because they are not normally revealed when the barcode is scanned.

Free Barcode Data Decoder Verifier App

Scans barcodes to verify encoded data, decode and reveal hidden ASCII control characters, GS1 FNC1 AI codes, and view information about the encoding of the symbol.

  • Identifies common 1D & 2D barcode types and provides information about the symbol.
  • Parses encoded GS1 data to separate out each application identifier and element string.
  • Reveals ASCII functions that cannot be printed or viewed on the screen including the FS, RS, GS, CR, HT, LF, and EOT functions.
  • Provides recommendations about how to generate the symbol that was scanned.
