Magnetic Swipe Reader - Interrupts


I just recently bought and old NCR 7454 unit for a little project and it comes with an integrated magnetic swipe reader connected directly to the motherboard and communicating through Interrupt #6

My problem is that you can only read from the cards when you have an application "listening" for it, which I am unable to find...

I am wondering if anyone is able to help me access this device, so that I can read cards from this and then use the data in everyday windows applications, for example passwords.

Thank you for all your help!! :-)
