Recommended scanner settings
The following settings should be configured in the device settings of the scanners.
Datalogic Memor 1 / Joya Touch A6
Settings - Scanner settings - Notification
Good read audio mode: None

Label suffix: [LF]
Group separator: [GS]
Settings - Scanner settings - Wedge
Enable keyboard wedge: Yes
