Barcodeworks is a tool designed specifically to add a barcode. Barcodeworks is an extension of Microsoft Word to create barcodes of types EAN-8, EAN-13 or JAN code in your document. As it inserts the barcode as a word-image composed of lines and available figures, it does not require special fonts to do so. The documents, including its barcode can be sent to other users without having to install special software. In addition, the extension can also be used to create barcodes that can be copied into other applications such as Illustrator.
