Barcode Linker is a program “shell” intended for multimedia support of printed editions (existing, and again issued) with the help of bar code technology. The connection between multimedia and the text, unlike the traditional printed references to materials on a compact disk, is carried out in addition through an insert of bar codes. This way of creating the references is much easier and more effective than traditional. In the absence of the bar code scanner, number of the reference is entered from the keyboard. For example: "1" "Enter" (Numbers of the references are printed together with a bar code). It is much easier, than to search for the necessary file on a compact disk. The bar code for the reference can be very compact, since it contains only 2 - 3 symbols and its accommodation in the text does not require a lot of place.
Another application of Barcode Linker is making presentations and preparation of educational material by lecturers. The management of the computer or "media" by a projector through the scanner at change of slides, does not require the lecturer constantly be beside the computer. The slides can be operated interactively; inserting the references to their numbers directly into the text of the lecture.
As a whole, Barcode Linker allows to create support of existing, and again issued printed editions by computer multimedia applications and is used in various directions of educational, research and advertising activity.
The program allows to lose a video and audio files, to look through files images in a format JPG (in the given version, but it is possible to use other formats), and also textual files, PowerPoint presentations and Internet references. The management of program work is carried out through the barcode scanner or keyboard.
