    I'm sorry, but we don't have such feature that would allow you to read a barcode and put it into your form fields. 

    We only have the following barcode widgets:

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/qr_code - a widget to add a special message.

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/dynamic_qr_code - a widget that would get a data from one of your form fields.

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/qr_code_reader - a widget to read QR codes.
