Takeout Settings > Barcode Scanners tab
Use the Barcode Scanners tab to enable USB bar code readers. Currently, only one reader of this type has been tested by NCR Hospitality, the Symbol LS-2208, which makes the reader available for purchase through normal channels. Other USB readers may, in fact, work with ATO and the Aloha POS system, but no others have been tested.
Note: If a normal keyboard is attached to the terminal along with the bar code reader, ATO may detect the keyboard instead.
Reference: Refer to the Aloha Takeout Bar Code Scanners Feature Focus Guide - HKS339 for more information.
