QR Code reader, using a hand held digital camera

  RISC OS user 16:22 18 Dec 2014

Is there a reliable QR Code/Bar Code reader App which I can obtain that will allow me to take a photograph of the original object and then come home and read it into my Windows 8.1 Laptop, which has a built-in camera. My "normal" camera is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ 18. I do not have a Tablet or Smart Phone as I find my Laptop gives me all I need under normal circumstances.
Would the above be possible or am I just dreaming?

I have looked at the Windows App store and the reviews are not very promising.

Have tried one and it was very difficult to use, so will give up.

Have you tried an on-line QR decoder?
