We have a high speed flatbed scanner scanning delivery docs printed out by
my app, as such i can print any type of barcode on the document. What i
need is something that i can pass a bitmap, jpg, etc to that will scan the
image for any barcode and return the data read.

The documents can be a bit dirty but are generally good quality.
