VentaFax Business

Powerful fax and voice software for both public switched telephony and Internet telephony networks (SIP and H.323 with G.711 and T.38 support). It turns your PC into a color fax and answering machine combo with Caller ID support that allows you to retrieve your fax and voice messages from any touchtone phone. It also can forward incoming faxes and voice messages by email as attached TIFF, PDF or WAV files.
The user interface is friendly and intuitive, resembling a regular fax machine with buttons and controls. It even shows you the image of a fax page travelling through this fax machine's slot as you transmit and receive faxes.
Ventafax is the one of a handful of software products that supports high-speed (up to 33600 bps) V34 Fax (Super G3) protocol. Ventafax also supports the TTS (Text-To-Speech) engines and will employ them to convert text files to speech. You can keep your announcements and outgoing voice messages as the sound (.WAV) files as well as the text files. Distinctive Ring service (if supported by your modem) is available even in Windows XP! Additional features include support for voice mailboxes, automatic voice/data/fax mode recognition and more. VentaFax is accessible from any Windows application, via a virtual printer driver.
