I'm considering purchasing a scanner such as the
Esky™ Automatic USB (Bi-directional) Barcode Scanner.
I've produced some QR codes (containing valid http URLs) which I'd like students at my school to scan.
I'd like to use the machine as a terminal - students scan the URL and then are unable to do anything else (no keyboard or mouse, for instance).
As such, is it possible to set this barcode scanner (or any others) to automatically open my browser if the QR Code being scanned has a URL format?
In addition, would it then be possible to have non-URL QR content to be entered into the browser's active form field? I.e. if the QR code said
12345, it would just enter it into the active text box on the current webpage (if a webpage was open already)?
