as far as I know there is no separate program/module; if you need to use barcode scanner in POS, which is installed on PC (odoo & scanner are running/connected to same computer), you don't need any driver; barcode scanner is in fact considered as kind of keybord, thus is supported 'by default' (most of scanners).

only one case when you need to have separate module is when you are running pos in posbox-like setup (odoo installed on one (remote) PC, in local area (shop/restaurant) you have posbox only, and scanner is connected to posbox; in such a case module 'hardware barcode reader' (or similar name) needs to be installed (in general: in case when barcode reader is connected to orher hardware than the one when odoo server is running.

Not asking for separate module, I am trying to find out with javascript program in point of sale module validates barcode read by barcode scanner, I assume there is a listener that runs waiting for barcode when POS start.
