Abstract

A facsimile system is disclosed that automatically reduces and enlarges a scanned document before delivering a facsimile transmission. The Figure shows an example of a table of default paper sizes for a number of countries to which facsimile transmissions are typically sent. The table which is stored in a memory of the system specifies a prefix code and a default fax paper size along with a country identifier. When an operator sends a facsimile and selects the systems automatic reduction and enlargement selection, the system will then determine an output paper size from the table based on the country to which the facsimile is being sent. The system will then automatically determine a reduction and enlargement value for each page scanned and transmitted. Thus, when automatic reduction and enlargement is selected by an operator of the system, an image is automatically scaled to fit the default paper size of a particular country specified in the table.

METHOD FOR AUTOMATICALLY REDUCING AND ENLARGING A DOCUMENT WHEN FAXING TO ANOTHER DEVICE (Cont'd)

A facsimile system is disclosed that automatically reduces and enlarges a scanned document before delivering a facsimile transmission. The Figure shows an example of a table of default paper sizes for a number of countries to which facsimile transmissions are typically sent. The table which is stored in a memory of the system specifies a prefix code and a default fax paper size along with a country identifier. When an operator sends a facsimile and selects the systems automatic reduction and enlargement selection, the system will then determine an output paper size from the table based on the country to which the facsimile is being sent. The system will then automatically determine a reduction and enlargement value for each page scanned and transmitted. Thus, when automatic reduction and enlargement is selected by an operator of the system, an image is automatically scaled to fit the default paper size of a particular country specified in the table.

For example, a facsimile operator normally sending a facsimile transmission to Sweden loses the right 1/2" and bottom 1" of an originally faxed document that is 8...
