Send a fax using monitor dialing
When you send a fax using monitor dialing, you can hear the 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 phone book contact to store the PIN for your calling card. For more
information, see Set up phone book contacts.
NOTE: Make sure the volume is turned on to hear a dial tone.
