Does not work on my tablet -alas.

I even tried printing out the bar-code and holding the printed sheet over 
the red line.

No beep - deafening silence!

That was the start of the journey. And the destination was:


This web-page has the bar-code that my tablet's bar-code scanner cannot 

However, there is nothing special about this bar-code; the installed 
scanner currently does not read *any* bar-code.

Total defeat!
