Human Readable Barcode

What is a Human Readable Barcode?

A human readable barcode is one that accommodates for text beneath the barcode. The human readable text may be placed above or below the barcode symbol.

The spaced human readable characters are placed evenly along the width of the barcode. This way, the edges of the barcode character line up with each other. The spaces between the characters are designated by the data source, not by the barcode. For example, the four-state customer code is printed with a horizontal barcode that uses a vertical line, while the vertical axis is a square. In most cases, data that is encoded onto the barcode is the same as the readable text below or above the barcode.
