Agentry Barcode Scanning - Audible Cue

I am building an Agentry app that will be used to scan barcodes. It will run on iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile devices.

The Windows Mobile devices have a built in scanner which should (I can't test it right now) emit a beep when the scan is successful.

But on an iOS or Android device the camera is used so there is no audible cue that the scan was successful. Since this app will be used in a high volume scanning environment I would like to emit a beep or other audible clue (camera shutter?) when the scan completes successfully.

Is there a way to do this in Agentry? Could it be implemented in an Action?



Using Agentry 6.0.41 and/or Agentry 7 (SMP 3.0 SP5 release)

    I had done some POC for one of the implementation last year, i had to drop that down as using camera for high volume scanning can be cumbersome and 2D scanning was not supported then. You might want to try 2D scanning by Android devices or using external hardware on IOS devices. I tried using Motorola MC40N0 . This device had Audible Clue. This approach will work only after Agentry product team confirms 2D scanning for iOS and Android clients.
