This is where I'm a bit lost on finding a way to read the barcode off
the faxed document as it's not the original format in which is was produced.
Where are you trying to read the barcode from? The electronic document?
Or by hand? The former could be an interesting challenge, the latter
is rather easy.
You'll need to find an external utility, java object or other application that can post process the uploaded image containing the barcode. I did a quick search and found the following;
http://www.amicentral.com/pixtools/ip.html (a pricey $2695)
http://www.microway.com.au/catalog/pegasus/smartscanbarcode.stm (com object, looks promising)
Yes, my understanding is that the customer would be receiving the documents back via fax electronically and they are not sure if the fax would stay in a TIF format or be converted into a PDF format. They are in the process (early stage) of moving all their documents into PDF.
thank you so much I will check out both of those links!
