CONT

With such a board, you can receive faxes, print them, and store them on your hard disk. You can also create outgoing faxes from text and graphic files, as well as images you've scanned in. Many fax boards can act as fax servers for large networks of computers - sending, receiving, and routing faxes for an entire office.

DEF

Carte d'extension installée sur une station de travail et utilisée pour envoyer ou recevoir des images par télécopie.

CONT

D'où l'idée des fabricants, mise en œuvre depuis trois ans, de proposer des cartes fax pour micro-ordinateur, qui se raccordent d'un côté à un connecteur d'extension et de l'autre à une prise téléphonique. Pilotées à l'aide d'un programme de communication, elles s'utilisent sans difficulté et ne nécessitent pas la présence d'une carte à l'autre bout de la ligne; un simple télécopieur suffit.

OBS

carte de télécopie : terme normalisé par la CSA International.
