Using camera phone for input in a text field

Our test device is a Blackberry Bold 9700  6.0 Bundle 1202 .


We have an existing web application that allows the input of a SKU/UPC to perform an inventory inquiry.


We would like to interface with the phone's camera whereby the user could take a picture of a UPC (or other bar code) and have the camera return the digits of the UPC from the picture to the web page for input into a text field - much like a keyboard wedge and a hand held scanner. The web page would then be able to operate as it currently does to display the inventory information of the product .


Is this something that can be done? Is there an existing API?
