While you cannot scan barcodes directly into the desktop version of Airtable, any barcodes scanned in the mobile version will appear in the web client, and can be altered manually from there.

If you are using an Android phone, you can use the flash button to turn on your mobile device's flashlight if you are scanning in a dark environment.
