Q: I Have a Wand Scanner and I Can not Get the Scanner to Read Any Labels.

There is a technique that is needed to scan a bar code with a
wand type scanner with a high degree of success. It is best
to hold the wand between 65 and 80 degrees with respect to
the label surface. The wand should be in contact
with the surface and the wand should cross over the label at
a constant velocity . Don’t be afraid to swipe what
you think is “too fast”. Too slow or too fast, both could be
unreadable.
