Send a fax from your PC: part 2

In part one of this article, we learned how to send a fax from your PC using Windows Fax and Scan. Today, we’ll look at how to do it in Office by creating a fax as a Word, Excell, or PowerPoint document.

The quickest method is to type Send in the help search bar at the top and select Internet Fax.  

An online fax service will be necessary to send faxes unless your scanner is plugged into a phone line. A lot of services advertise themselves as free, but that usually means that you get a few free faxes, but have to pay for additional ones. If you don’t need to fax very often, you can get by without spending anything.  Let’s look at a few of your options.

axZero is a perfect choice for infrequent faxers.  You can send up to five faxes per day (maximum of three pages long) If you want to send a longer fax, you can pay $2.09 fee to send up to 25 pages.  The interface is simple. Just add your information and the information of the receiver. Then upload the document or PDF you wish to send. Finally, type in your cover page.


Then hit Send Free Fax. Your cover page will be branded with the faxZERO logo.

Another option is GotFreeFax.  It offers up to 2 free faxes per day (with a limit of 3 pages).  There are paid options starting at .98 to send 10 pages. The interface is also simple. Just enter your information and attach a document, PDF, or .jpg.
