Does PamFax support OCR?

PamFax does not directly support OCR in the sense that PamFax would automatically generate an OCR document from an incoming fax. But since PamFax has Google Docs integration there is a workaround for this.

You need a Google account and you need to activate the Backup option in PamFax (only available for accounts with a fax number). Then activate auto backup to Google Docs. As a result a copy of the received faxes will be sent to your Google Docs account and will appear there too.

In Google Docs you can now use the PDF to text converter function. Note that the result may vary depending on the quality of the received fax.
