Barcodes can often be seen on product packaging designs and contain information on the product that can be read by a machine. It is an inseparable part of many graphic design layouts, and its correctness is vital to approve the overall project.
Since the bars and spaces traditionally present in a barcode are not meant for the human eye, the best way to check it would be to have a barcode reader feature in your design review tool. Surely, Approval Studio has one!
