fax
  • A method of transmitting a printed page between locations, via a telecommunications system. A telephone line is usually used. The document is scanned at the sending location, encoded, and transmitted by the sending device. The receiving device decodes the signal, then prints a copy of the original document, which may include text, graphics, and so on. Computers may also serve to transmit and/or receive such documents, without the need for hard copy at either end.
  • One or more printed pages sent or received via fax (1).
