Hello.

I was testing 4 means of scanning and faxind documentation and found out that 2 of the 4 work the best and one of them is free!

1) Scan and use MS Fax software and print to the driver!
2) Use Mighty Fax software.
3) Use PDF printing software and print to either MS Fax driver or Mighty Fax driver.
4) Use SnappyFax or SnappyFax Driver (for some reason the SnappyFax software doesn't fax my image from the scanner pretty good. Might have something to do with me having a paralle port scanner?

I'm still learning where to get stuff for free that actually works as good or better than something I pay for.

For instance : used to buy conceal, blackice, mcafee, norton firewalls but after a year found out ZoneAlarm was the best and it's free. LOL:D

MS office??????

HA
www.staroffice.org

A tab bit more resource intensive but not much more. Will open MS Word formats and Excel formats. Don't know how it will handle the more complex things in a conversion but for what I do it works perfectly.
