InDesign QR code and accents

Hi, 

An InDesign (14.03) generated QR code containing names with accents (é, ë, á etc.) gives problems when read with an iPhone (XR, iOS 13.1.2). For example, the name Daniël (note the double dots on the e) comes out as Dani√'l. As nobody near me has an Android phone to test if the problem persists, I can't figure out if this problem is InDesign, iPhone or QR code related. Does anyone have a clue? Is there a workaround?

Cheers, Olaf

I'm not sure what you want me to do here. How do I get that binary code? Sorry, I am just a user of the Adobe CC, not a programmer of any sort.

Make QR code in InDesign and take a screenshot that you can upload previous decode site.

You will get decode result string with raw byte codes.

The problem is that different QR reader read äöüß wrong, other correct. I do not believe, that this is an InDesign problem rather a problem of the QR reader.

Probably InDesign's mode select during encoding is not correct. I want to check the raw binary data to confirm it.

However, You can use QR Code Maker pro Extension to make correct code.
