Send a fax using monitor dialing
Monitor dialing allows you to hear dial tones, telephone prompts, or other sounds
through the speakers on the printer. This enables you to respond to prompts while
dialing, as well as control the pace of your dialing.
TIP: If you are using a calling card and do not enter your PIN fast enough, the
printer might start sending fax tones too soon and cause your PIN not to be
recognized by the calling card service. If this is the case, you can create a speed
dial entry to store the PIN for your calling card. For more information, see Set up
NOTE: Make sure the volume is turned on to hear a dial tone.
