When setting a barcode scanner to any of the available keyboard modes (KB-wedge / USB-keyboard), it mimics a regular keyboard and sends keystrokes, instead of characters, to the host computer. In order to send the proper keystrokes, the scanner must be configured to the same keyboard layout as the one being used by the host computer.
