Only for O$ Mac & fat client users:

Kelly has a GREAT external HIDTalk which supports barcode readers, which 
are HID aware (ex: Honeywell).
So the keyboard doesn’t interfere with the barcode reader and imho the 
biggest advantage is that it allows Omnis to grab the barcode data even 
when Omnis isn’t the active/front app ( could even be a window less 
Omnis application )
