Barcode Scanning Software

Can anyone recommend any barcode scanning software that is reliable, easy-to-use, compatible with Word, Excel, etc and fairly customizable? Did a search on google, but not finding too much that strikes my fancy.

Do you already have a scanner?

I'm asking because there are ones that go in parallel with your keyboard and just make it look like you typed in the numbers. No software needed.

Most barcode scanners simply spit out ascii characters. They sit in line with the keyboard, and whatever program you scan into just thinks that you typed in the numbers, like X said.
