Modem Sound on Fax



I got a dumb question.

When I fax directly from my laptop through my modem, I don't hear the modem
dialing. I checked all the options and set-up files and everything seems to
be ok.

When I dial out for other reasons, I can hear the modem dialing. Is there a
set-up somewhere where I can turn on the modem dialing when I fax. Please
help and thank you.

If you are using the Fax which comes with Windows XP this is what you need
to do to enable sounds:-

1) Go to Start-> Printers and Faxes
2) Right-click on the Fax printer and select "Properties" menu option
3) Go to the "Tracking" tab
4) Click on the button "configure Sound Settings" and a window would
come up displaing various soun options for you.
5) Click on appropriate check boxes to enable sounds.

Thanks for responding to my problem. All the options on the Configure Sound
screen are all checked but still no sound when I send fax, however, when I
use the modem to dial out for other apps - there is sound.
