==============================================================================
   
Q.1 Can I use my * data modem to send/receive faxes?
   
   In a word, no. Unless your data modem has specific additional support
   for fax, you cannot communicate with fax devices using a data (only)
   modem.
   
   Simply put, the problem is that the modulation methods (tones) used to
   communicate data are different from those used to communicate faxes.
   
   Typically the modulation schemes used for fax are synchronous
   half-duplex while those used for data (at least by most UNIX and PC
   people) are asynchronous and full-duplex.
   
   Also, data modems, once they have negotiated a modulation scheme, tend
   to continue with the same one through out the session. Fax modems
   switch before and after each page between a high-speed modulation
   scheme used to transmit the image data and a lower (300 or 2400 bps)
   scheme to exchange control information.
   
   The following table outlines this briefly (see also part 1 of this FAQ
   for definitions of V.*).

  Data Rate                   Data Modulation Std.       Fax Modulation Std.
  ========================+==========================+========================
   9,600 bps              |            V.32          |       V.29
  ------------------------+--------------------------+------------------------
  14,400 bps              |            V.32bis       |       V.17
  ========================+==========================+========================

   
     _________________________________________________________________
   
  Q.1A CAN MY FAX MODEM TRANSMIT DATA?
   
   In a word, maybe. There is a standard proposed by the EIA/TIA/ANSI
   called Binary File Transfer (BFT) that extends the fax Group III
   modulation and protocols for bulk data transfer.
   
   The problem, of course, is that few fax modems or software packages
   provide support for this mechanism. 
   
Q.2 How can I fax PostScript or PCL documents using computer-based fax?

   
   
   In addition to the basic software to drive your fax modem/board, you
   will need specific software that can convert PostScript or PCL files
   into a raster image format compatible with your fax software package.
   
   GhostScript, for example, is a publically available software package
   that can convert PostScript into raster image format (although there
   are varying opinions on the quality of the font support).
   
   In the commercial world, most of the vendors of fax software provide
   software that can handle PostScript and/or PCL.
   
   When purchasing such software (a) check how many different fonts are
   supported (it's a pain to be able to use, say, NewCentury on your
   laser printer only to find it is not included in your fax package),
   and (b) in the case of PCL, check which level of the language is
   supported (PCL-4 does not support scalable fonts, PCL-5 does).
     _________________________________________________________________
   
   
   
Q.3 How can I view incoming faxes on my computer?

   
   
   In the PD world, there are a number of image-viewing packages
   available for X (such as xv).
   
   In the commercial world, most fax vendors provide support for the
   commonly available devices (in the case of UNIX, X; in the case of
   PC-UNIX, VGA and HGA support. Some vendors support other
   graphics-capable terminals such as the Wyse WY-160.)
     _________________________________________________________________
   
   
   
Q.4 How can I print incoming faxes on my computer?

   
   
   Most fax software packages include software to convert fax images into
   print data streams compatible with dot matrix, HP PCL, or PostScript
   printers.
   
   Also the publically available (where?) pbmplus filter kit will handle
   most image formats.
     _________________________________________________________________
   
   
   
Q.5 Can fax modems also handle data or voice calls?

   
   
   Not all fax boards can handle data (some are fax only). Most (all?)
   external fax modems can handle data as well as fax.
   
   Some (but not all) fax modems and software can automatically
   distinguish between data and fax calls and answer them appropriately.
   
   Some DOS/WINDOWS based products can automatically distinguish between
   voice and fax/data calls and operate as a digital answer machine as
   well as a fax machine.
   
   Also, several companies sell devices which can switch incoming calls
   between a fax machine, a telephone answering machine, and a modem.
   [Suggestions anyone?]
     _________________________________________________________________
   
   
   
Q.6 What resolution are fax images?

   
   
   The standard resolution for faxes is 3.85 scan lines/mm (approx. 98
   dpi vertically) with 1728 pixels across a standard scan line of 215 mm
   (approx. 204 dpi horizontally).
   
   The optional "fine" resolution is 7.7 scan lines/mm (approx. 196 dpi
   vertically) with the same horizontal resolution.
   
   Many Group III fax machines use non-standard frames to negotiate
   higher resolutions (typically 300x300 dpi and 400x400 dpi) with other
   fax machines by the same manufacturer.
   
   Two fax machines (or modems) must negotiate a common resolution, page
   width, and page length before sending each page. The standard requires
   that all Group III fax machines suppport at least standard resolution
   and A4 size so that common ground can always be found.
   
   Extensions to the Group III standard to support these higher
   resolutions in a standard way have been proposed. Their current status
   is not known [Need more information]. [Need more information on
   resolutions supported by Group IV].
     _________________________________________________________________
   
   
   
Q.7 Can I take a fax file and edit it?

   
   
   When faxes exchange information, it is done in the form of compressed
   images (with the exception of BFT). If you wish to edit or otherwise
   manipulate a received fax file you have two options:
    1. edit the file using a "paint" program that will accept the fax
       file (unfortunately there is a wide range of file formats for
       image files and you may have to work to find a format that is
       common between your fax application and your paint program).
    2. pass the file through an OCR program that will attempt to convert
       the image into ASCII (or word processing file format). The problem
       here is that most OCR programs are tuned to work with 300x300dpi
       images and faxes are either 98x204 or 196x204.
       
   
     _________________________________________________________________
   
   
   
Q.8 Is there a standard program interface (API) for fax communications?

   
   
   There are many API's that are used for fax communications. Words
   marked by -word- are further explained in the glossary in Part 1 of
   this FAQ.
   
   At the hardware level, the two standards that govern the exchange of
   commands between a host computer and a fax modem are EIA-578 (-Class
   1-) and EIA-592 (-Class 2-).
   
   At the software level there is one "official" standard and a number of
   "industry standards". The one "official" standard is ITU-T T.611
   ([need more information on this standard]).
   
   The most widely known industry standards are -CAS- (Communicating
   Applications Standard (?)) invented by Intel and DCA and tied closely
   to the Intel architecture, and -FaxBios- (developed by an industry
   consortium) which is less machine-dependent (implementations for
   MS-DOS and WINDOWS have been published and sporadic work on UNIX and
   other bindings is underway).
     _________________________________________________________________
   
   
   
Q.9 How can I share my single phone line with voice, fax, data, etc.

   
   
   There are a number of devices on the market (suggestions from happy
   campers welcome) that will try to distinguish between an incoming
   voice, fax, or data call and route the call appropriately.
   
   These fax switches attach to the phone line and then the other devices
   (your normal voice phone/answering machine, fax machine, data modem,
   etc.) are attached to the fax switch).
   
   All devices work on one of two general principles: listening for CNG
   or voice, or listening for distinctive ring patterns (cadences).
   
   In the first case the device will answer the phone and try to guess
   what it should do based on what it hears. Some machines play back a
   sound of a phone ringing so that humans dialling in think the phone is
   still ringing when in fact the fax switch is listening to see if the
   call is from a fax machine or a human. If the CNG tone (see Part 1 for
   a definition of CNG) from the calling fax machine is heard, then the
   switch connects the call to the fax machine, otherwise the call is
   deemed to be a voice call and is connected to your phone/answering
   machine.
   
   A slightly more sophisticated approach is for the fax switch to answer
   the phone and play a short recorded announcement. If, during the
   announcement the CNG tone is heard, then the call is switched to the
   fax machine. If no CNG tone is heard but sound is heard after the
   announcement, then the call is assumed to be voice and switched
   appropriately. If nothing is heard then the switch either considers
   the call a data call and switches it to a modem or considers it a fax
   call from a machine that does not generate a CNG and switches it to
   the fax machine.
   
   The other approach relies upon an optional service available from some
   telcos called "SmartRing", "Distinctive Ring", "RingMaster",
   "Ident-a-Ring", etc. This feature allows one to have more than one
   phone number associated with the same phone line. Incoming calls using
   the different phone numbers can be differentiated by the different
   ringing patterns (i.e. one long ring, two short rings, three short
   rings, etc.) The fax switch distributes the call based on the ring
   cadence it detects.
   
   The advantage of the first approach is that one does not have to send
   more money to the phone company (or depend upon the availability of
   the "SmartRing" feature being available). The disadvantage is that it
   is not always reliable (especially in the face of fax machines that do
   not generate CNG tones).
   
   The advantage of the second approach is that it is very very reliable.
   The disadvantage is that it requires the availability of the
   "SmartRing" feature from one's telco as well as sending more money to
   the telco every month.

Q.11 What legal restrictions are there on the use of facsimile devices?

   ***** FCC January 11, 1993 Public Notice *****
   
    FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION
    
   PUBLIC NOTICE (31291 / DA 92-1716) January 11, 1993
   
   INDUSTRY BULLETIN
   TELEPHONE CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT
   TELEPHONE SOLICITATIONS, AUTODIALED AND ARTIFICIAL OR PRERECORDED
   VOICE MESSAGE TELEPHONE CALLS, AND THE USE OF FACSIMILE MACHINES
   
   
   The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is a federal statute that
   was enacted on December 20, 1991, to address concerns about the
   growing volume of unsolicited telephone marketing calls and the
   increasing use of automated and prerecorded telephone calls. The TCPA
   imposes restrictions on the use of automatic telephone dialing systems
   ("autodialers"), artificial or prerecorded voice messages, and
   telephone facsimile machines to send unsolicited advertisements. The
   TCPA also directs the FCC to adopt regulations to protect residential
   telephone subscribers' privacy rights to avoid receiving telephone
   solicitations to which they object.
   
   The FCC adopted rules and regulations, effective December 20, 1992,
   implementing the TCPA. The FCC will be monitoring complaints about
   automated calls and unwanted telephone solicitations to determine
   whether additional action to limit or to prohibit such calls would be
   appropriate.
   DO FCC RULES BAN UNSOLICITED ADVERTISEMENTS TO TELEPHONE FACSIMILE
   MACHINES?
   
   
   Yes. Effective December 20, 1992, FCC rules ban the transmission of
   unsolicited advertisements to telephone facsimile machines. An
   "unsolicited advertisement" is defined as a transmission advertising
   the commercial availability or quality of property, goods or services
   without the prior express invitation or permission of the person or
   entity receiving the transmission.
   
   Unsolicited advertisements may not be transmitted by any device to a
   telephone facsimile machine unless the person receiving the facsimile
   has given prior express invitation or permission to receive it. If the
   sender and the recipient have an established business relationship, an
   invitation or permission to receive unsolicited facsimile
   advertisements is presumed to exist. However, the recipient may end an
   established business relationship by requesting that no further
   unsolicited advertisements be sent, thus revoking any invitation or
   permission to receive further transmissions.
   WHAT OTHER REQUIREMENTS APPLY TO THE USE OR MANUFACTURE OF TELEPHONE
   FACSIMILE MACHINES?
   
   
   FCC rules require that each transmission to a telephone facsimile
   machine must clearly contain, in a margin at the top or bottom of each
   transmitted page or on the first page of the transmission, (1) the
   date and time the transmission is sent (2) the identity of the sender
   and (3) the telephone number of the sender or of the sending machine.
   All telephone facsimile machines manufactured on or after December 20,
   1992 must have the capacity to clearly mark such identifying
   information on the first page or on each page of the transmission.
   
   [Note, according to the FCC January 13, 1993 Public Notice, the
   requirement to mark faxes with the above identifying information on
   applied to fax machines and not for fax cards used in computers
   pending reconsideration proceedings.]
   WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLIANCE WITH FCC RULES ON TELEPHONE
   FACSIMILE TRANSMISSIONS?
   
   
   The person on whose behalf a facsimile transmission is sent will
   ultimately be held liable for violations of the TCPA or FCC rules.
   DO THE TCPA AND THE FCC'S RULES PREEMPT STATE LAW?
   
   
   The TCPA specifically preempts state law where it conflicts with the
   technical and procedural requirements for identification of senders of
   telephone facsimile messages or automated artificial or prerecorded
   voice messages.
   
   The TCPA and the FCC's rules do not preempt state law which imposes
   more restrictive requirements or regulations for (1) the use of
   facsimile machines or other electronic devices to send unsolicited
   advertisements, (2) the use of autodialers, (3) the use of artificial
   or prerecorded voice messages, or (4) the making of telephone
   solicitations.
   
   Thus, depending on state law, the TCPA, the FCC's rules and/or state
   laws could apply to your company's services. You should contact the
   state public utilities commission in each state where your company
   provides the services listed in the previous paragraph to determine
   what laws apply in those states.
   WHERE CAN I ORDER A COMPLETE COPY OF THE TCPA AND THE FCC'S ORDER
   EXPLAINING IMPLEMENTATION OF THAT ACT?
   
   
   Copies can be ordered from the FCC's contractor for public records
   duplication: Downtown Copy Center, 1990 M Street, N.W., Suite 640,
   Washington, D.C. 20036 (telephone: (202) 452-1422). You should ask for
   copies of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Report and
   Order in CC Docket No. 92-90 released by the Commission on October 16,
   1992 (In the Matter of Rules and Regulations Implementing the
   Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991).

          paper) machines. The Panasonic KX-F230 and the Brother 600 were
          rated "Best Buys". Get the article to see where the rest ended
          up and why (reprinting the entire list of ratings would exceed

          1992, Artech House, Norwood, MA. ISBN: 0-89006-495-5

          by Joe Campbell; SAMS Publishing; 1994; ISBN: 0-672-30286-1
          (The main addition of the second edition was a monster chapter
          on facsimile including redrawn T.30 flow charts and narratives
          to walk the reader through various scenarios (e.g., EOP, EOM,
          MPS). It's got good source code for T.4 encoding and decoding.
          In general, I believe it's the only intelligible discussion of
          the subject available to programmers.) Information supplied by
          the author, Joe Campbell (joec@calon.com).

I.11 Conferences on Fax

   
   
  BIS STRATEGIC DECISIONS
  
   
   
   BIS Strategic Decisions runs several conferences on fax and related
   technologies. Historically they ran the "Facsimile and Image
   Communications Conference" every spring and every fall they held the
   "Annual Computer Fax Conference). In 1995, however, BIS is planning to
   merge these two conferences into a single "FAXWORLD'95" conference.
   Current plans are to hold this in San Francisco from June 5-7th, 1995
   but rumours abound that it will be pushed back to the first week in
   December, 1995.
   
   EUROFAX'95 is planned for Amsterdam in October'95.
