    We have tested two barcode scanner methods: Motorola LS2208 Barcode Scanner and iPhone/iCody/Thetis Solution.

  • Motorola LS2208 Barcode Scanner

    1. You can purchase a Motorola LS2208 barcode scanner at amazon.

    2. After connecting the barcode scanner to your computer via USB, scan the HID KEYBOARD EMULATION bar code in Step 3 of the instructions.

    3. Then add an enter key option to the scanner by scanning the three barcodes under Add an Enter Key (Carriage Return/Line Feed) of the instructions. This will automatically open the Scoring form when you scan a test label.

  • iPhone / iCody / Thetis Solution

    1. If you have an iPhone, download iCody from the Apple App Store.

    2. Next you will need to download Thetis onto the computer that has Fox Village Dressage installed. You can download it by going to http://www.appthology.net/en/thetis

    3. After installing Thetis, open the application and find The IP address to paste to iCody.
