Using Word to Send Faxes

Faxing is yet another fast, convenient way to get information from your office or home computer to other people around the country or around the world. Using Word, you can send faxes using your system’s fax modem (if one is installed) or a fax service, which is the recommended process in Word 2003. In both cases, Word provides a Fax Wizard that walks you through most of the process. In addition, with the Office 2003 optical character recognition feature, you can edit online faxes to remove personal information. This part of the chapter addresses creating, sending, and working with faxes in Word 2003. To kick off the discussion, the standard approach of using a fax modem is described first.

Note

If you use Internet fax services, you’ll probably have to pay a fee to a third-party vendor for the service. If you use a fax modem’s software, you can send faxes using the Fax Wizard in Word. If you use the Microsoft Fax program with your fax modem, the Fax Wizard in Word 2003 automatically opens the Send Fax Wizard, as described later in this chapter.
