Can I automatically scan a QR code from a mobile browser?

So I am wandering if there is a way in which I can take my users to a URL link, and when the browser opens up the link, the Android or IOS device which is being used scans a QR code image, directly from the browser, automatically.

So what I mean is, is there a way to scan a QR Code without having to open the camera? And potentially have a button press scan a QR Code image I provide?

I have found an app which does this. If you download UC Browser and click the top right icon, then go to album and provide a QR code, it will scan that QR code. But would this be possible from the browser?

Is there possibly a way to do this using JavaScript? Thank you
