Description

  The present invention relates to a facsimile machine, and more particularly to a facsimile machine having a one-touch key function.

  Conventionally, in a facsimile machine, an operator inputs a destination telephone number (fax number) as a destination at the time of communication and presses a transmission start key to execute fax transmission. In addition, by registering the destination fax number in the memory corresponding to the one-touch key in advance, the operator can easily select the destination one-touch key, press it, and then press the start key. You can send a fax.

  In recent years, with the spread of PCs, the connection between facsimile machines and PCs has become common, and registration operations such as registration of fax numbers and destination names on one-touch keys have become much easier. For this reason, users of facsimile machines that did not use the one-touch key have come to use the one-touch key due to the troublesome registration of the conventional one-touch key.

  On the other hand, the facsimile machine itself cannot be arranged with many one-touch keys due to restrictions such as size due to miniaturization and cost restrictions due to low prices, and the number of one-touch keys that can be arranged in the apparatus is restricted. There was a problem that the number of registrations could not be increased. Therefore, an operator who uses the one-touch key has to frequently register and change the destination telephone number for the one-touch key.

  As described above, it is desired that the digital multi-function apparatus has good operability and has a one-touch key capable of registering more destination telephone numbers.

  In response to such a request, a “communication terminal device” described in Patent Literature 1 or a “digital composite device” disclosed in Patent Literature 2 is disclosed.

  The “communication terminal device” of Patent Document 1 displays a RAM for storing a plurality of destination tables, a switching key for selecting one of the destination tables stored in the RAM, and a destination of the selected destination table. When one of the first LCD, the one-touch key arranged corresponding to the destination display form of the LCD, the second LCD for displaying which destination table is selected, and one of the one-touch keys is pressed. Since the dial information of the destination corresponding to the one-touch key is read from the destination table and has the NCU to be dialed, a plurality of destinations can be assigned to one one-touch key.

  Therefore, it is substantially the same as that a large number of one-touch keys are arranged, and the operator can use many one-touch keys.

  The “digital composite device” disclosed in Patent Document 2 is a backup memory having a predetermined capacity in which various function items such as a one-touch dial function and a group dial function and individual registration contents registered corresponding to the various function items are stored. And a large LCD display section of the operation panel that displays various function items and individual registration contents, and the function item functions are executed on the individual registration contents by operating the operation panel according to the display of the large LCD display section. In this case, the function items and the maximum number of individual registration contents for each function item can be arbitrarily set and registered within the allowable range of the capacity of the backup memory.

Therefore, the function items can be arbitrarily set and registered according to the usage form of the operator, and the necessary number of individual registration contents can be registered, thereby improving usability and operability.
Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2003-60770 JP 2001-326796 A

  However, in Patent Document 1, although the one-touch key is effectively used, the number of one-touch keys is not limited or the operability is not improved. Further, in Patent Document 2, although effective use is made within the allowable range of the capacity of the backup memory set in advance, the convenience on the user side is not sufficiently improved.

  Also, in these methods, as a means of knowing the destination information registered in the one-touch key, the destination is described on the one-touch key or in a gap between the one-touch keys, or a sheet or seal on which the destination is described is formed. I was doing. However, the key size tends to be small because many one-touch keys are arranged, the addressing work is also detailed, laborious and poor in visibility, and the operability is small because the one-touch keys are small. There was a problem of being damaged.

  An object of the present invention is to provide a facsimile apparatus in which a one-touch key is effectively used and has excellent operability, in view of the drawbacks of the prior art.

  According to a second aspect of the present invention, in the facsimile apparatus according to the first aspect, the editing means converts katakana and alphanumeric symbols included in the destination address to half-width characters.

  According to a third aspect of the present invention, in the facsimile apparatus according to the first or second aspect, a plurality of transmission destination names and telephone numbers corresponding to the transmission destination destination names are registered in the one-touch key, and the one-touch key is pressed by the control means. Then, a plurality of transmission destination address names and telephone numbers corresponding to the transmission destination address names are sequentially displayed on the display means.

  According to a fourth aspect of the present invention, in the facsimile apparatus according to the third aspect, the display means displays a plurality of one-touch keys simultaneously.

  According to a fifth aspect of the present invention, the facsimile apparatus according to the fourth aspect further includes a screen switching unit, and the switching unit displays a plurality of one-touch key screens in order on the display unit.

  According to the present invention, the destination address name registered in the one-touch key as the one-touch key is displayed in an easy-to-see manner, the number of destination telephone numbers registered in the one-touch key can be increased, and the one-touch key can be registered more easily than before.

FIG. 5 shows an embodiment of the operation flow of the facsimile apparatus of FIG.
This operation flow is a flow for registering a destination name and a destination telephone number as destination information in a one-touch key.
When the operator registers the destination information in the one-touch key, for example, after pressing the function key on the transmission screen shown in FIG. 2, the operator follows the instruction on the screen of the display / notification unit 2 and then touches the one-touch key shown in FIG. 3. Reach the registration screen for various settings. More specifically, as the key operation procedure, for example, a function key is pressed, then initial setting is selected, various registrations are further selected, and one-touch registration is selected to display a one-touch registration screen.

  When the one-touch registration screen is displayed, the display / notification unit 2 displays a message indicating that the one-touch key to be registered is pressed in order to register the destination information in the one-touch key (step S501).

  Here, when it is recognized that the one-touch key to be registered is pressed by the operator, it is determined whether or not the pressed one-touch key has already been registered (step S502).

  If it is determined in step S502 that the one-touch key pressed by the operator has not been registered, for example, the message “Please enter the fax number to be registered” as shown in FIG. The fax number is input via the numeric keypad on the screen (step S503). If it is determined in step S502 that the one-touch key pressed by the operator has already been registered, for example, a warning message “The specified one-touch key has already been registered” is displayed on the display / notification unit 2, The destination registration process for the designated one-touch key is terminated (step S508).

  When recognizing that the input of the fax number is completed in step S503, for example, the message “Please enter the destination name to be registered” as shown in FIG. It is determined whether or not a destination name is input (step S504).

  When the key operation for inputting the destination name is performed in step S504, the input destination name data is stored in the RAM of the system control unit 3 (step S505). Here, a destination name registration method by the operator will be briefly described. The operator inputs a destination name on the destination name input screen shown in FIG. The destination name is input on the various setting screens shown in FIG. 3 displayed on the operation unit 1 large LCD. The input mode can be entered by switching the mode input mode to kana input, alphanumeric input, hiragana input, or using a conversion key that converts the input kana or hiragana into kanji, katakana, etc. input. More specifically, for example, by selecting hiragana with the mode switching key and entering “KABUSIKIGAIYAYAMAGATABUSSAN” in Roman characters, you can enter “Kabushiki Gaisha Yamagatabu” and convert with the conversion key By doing so, it can be registered as “Yamagata Bussan Co., Ltd.”.

  In step S504, after the fax number is entered, if the operator presses the OK key indicating the end of registration in the operation unit 1 and recognizes that the destination name is not registered, for example, “There is no destination name. A warning message “The fax number will be registered” is displayed on the display / notification unit 2, and the destination registration process for the designated one-touch key is terminated (step S509).

  When the destination name is input in step S505, it is determined whether or not to edit the display name displayed on the one-touch key (step S506). When a key operation for editing the display name displayed on the one-touch key is performed by the operator, the edited destination name data is stored in the RAM of the system control unit 3 (step S507). Here, a destination name registration method by the operator will be briefly described. The operator edits the destination name on the destination name input screen shown in FIG. To edit these display names, when deleting an unnecessary character from the destination name already registered in the operation unit 1, move the cursor to the character to be deleted with the arrow keys and operate the delete key to delete the characters. To do. When adding a character, the cursor is moved to the position where the character is added using the arrow keys, and the character to be added is input by a key operation similar to the input of the destination name. These characters are deleted and added, and the display name displayed on the one-touch key is edited.

  In step S506, after the destination name is input, if the operator presses the OK key indicating the end of registration in the operation unit 1 and recognizes that the key display name editing registration is not performed, for example, “Key display name is Yamagata Co., Ltd.” Is displayed on the display / notification unit 2, and the destination registration process for the designated one-touch key is terminated (step S510).

FIG. 6 shows an operation flow of fax transmission in the facsimile apparatus having the registration operation shown in FIG.
When performing fax transmission in the facsimile apparatus, the operator sets a document to be transmitted and selects a destination fax number. There are two methods for selecting a destination fax number: a method of instructing using the numeric keypad of the operation unit 1, a method of instructing using a one-touch key, or a method of instructing using an abbreviated dial or a redial key. A case where transmission is performed using a one-touch key or a numeric keypad will be described.

  First, the manuscript to be transmitted is set on the reading unit 10 by the operator, and the destination fax number is input. At this time, it is determined whether the fax destination selection is input using a one-touch key or numeric keypad (step S601).

  If it is determined in step S601 that the fax destination has been selected using the numeric keypad, and the operator recognizes that the OK key has been pressed after entering the numeric keypad, the entered fax number is stored in the RAM of the system control unit 3. It accumulates in the transmission destination (step S609). These managements are performed by the system control unit 3 to manage transmission destinations.

  If it is determined in step S601 that the fax destination selection has been input with the one-touch key, it is next determined whether or not the destination information is registered in the one-touch key (step S602). If it is determined that the destination information is not registered, an unregistered message, for example, “the selected one-touch key is not registered” is displayed on the display / notification unit 2 (step S608).

  If it is determined in step S602 that the destination information is registered in the one-touch key, the one-touch key displays that the one-touch key has been selected (step S603). For example, the LCD backlight of the one-touch key is turned on, the character color of the destination name character of the one-touch key is changed, the background color of the LCD of the one-touch key is changed, and the character of the destination name character of the one-touch key flashes. It is carried out by a method with good visibility.

  Next, the fax number is stored in the transmission destination in the RAM of the system control unit 3 from the destination information of the one-touch key (step S604). In the same manner as in the case where the fax number is selected by a method other than the one-touch key in step S609, the system control unit 3 manages the transmission destination.

  Next, a message “Is there a destination to add?” Is displayed on the display / notification unit 2, and it is determined whether there is a fax destination to be added (step S605). If it is determined that the destination add key has been pressed, the process returns to step S601 to determine a method for inputting the next fax destination. Note that whether or not there is a next destination selection is determined by the fact that another one-touch key has been pressed even if it is not recognized that the destination addition key has been pressed. It is also possible to judge.

  If it is determined in step S605 that there is no next destination selection, it is monitored whether the fax transmission key is pressed (step S605). The operator presses a fax transmission key after instructing all fax destinations. If it is determined in step S605 that the fax transmission key has been pressed by the operator, the system control unit 3 instructs the communication control unit 5 to send a fax to all fax destinations stored and managed as transmission destinations. The communication control unit 5 performs fax communication with the partner facsimile machine via the NCU unit 8 (step S607).

FIG. 7 shows another embodiment of the operation flow of the facsimile apparatus of FIG.
This embodiment is a registration operation flow in a digital composite apparatus having a function capable of registering a plurality of pieces of destination information in one one-touch key.
When registering the destination information in the one-touch key, the operator arrives at various setting registration screens which are one-touch registration screens shown in FIG. 3 according to the instructions on the screen of the display / notification unit 2. More specifically, as the key operation procedure, for example, a function key is pressed, then initial setting is selected, various registrations are further selected, and one-touch registration is selected to display a one-touch registration screen.

  When the one-touch registration screen is displayed, the display / notification unit 2 displays a message indicating that the one-touch key to be registered is pressed in order to register the destination information in the one-touch key (step S701).

  Here, when it is recognized that the one-touch key to be registered is selected and pressed by the operator, whether or not the number of registrable items (maximum registration number) set for the pressed one-touch key has been reached, that is, It is determined whether or not all the maximum registration numbers of the designated one-touch key have been registered (step S702).

  If the one-touch key pressed by the operator in step S702 does not reach the maximum number of items that can be registered and if it is determined that registration is possible, for example, “Enter the fax number to be registered” as shown in FIG. Is displayed on the display / notification unit 2, and the fax number is input via the numeric keypad on the screen (step S703). If it is determined in step S702 that the one-touch key pressed by the operator has already been registered, for example, a warning message “The specified one-touch key has already been registered” is displayed on the display / notification unit 2, The destination registration process for the designated one-touch key is terminated (step S708).

  When recognizing that the input of the fax number is completed in step S703, the display / notification unit 2 displays a message "Please enter the destination name to be registered" as shown in FIG. It is determined whether or not a destination name is input (step S704).

  When the key operation for inputting the destination name is performed in step S704, the input destination name data is stored in the RAM of the system control unit 3 (step S705). Here, a destination name registration method by the operator will be briefly described. The operator inputs a destination name on the destination name input screen shown in FIG. The destination name is input on the various setting screens shown in FIG. 3 displayed on the operation unit 1 large LCD. The input mode can be entered by switching the mode input mode to kana input, alphanumeric input, hiragana input, or using a conversion key that converts the input kana or hiragana into kanji, katakana, etc. input. More specifically, for example, by selecting hiragana with the mode switching key and entering “KABUSIKIGAIYAYAMAGATABUSSAN” in Roman characters, you can enter “Kabushiki Gaisha Yamagatabu” and convert with the conversion key By doing so, it can be registered as “Yamagata Bussan Co., Ltd.”.

  In step S704, after the fax number is input, if the operator presses the OK key indicating the end of registration in the operation unit 1 and recognizes that the destination name is not registered, for example, “There is no destination name. A warning message “The fax number will be registered” is displayed on the display / notification unit 2, and the destination registration process for the designated one-touch key is terminated (step S709).

  When the destination name is input in step S705, it is determined whether or not to edit the display name displayed on the one-touch key (step S706). When a key operation for editing the display name displayed on the one-touch key is performed by the operator, the edited destination name data is stored in the RAM of the system control unit 3 (step S707). Here, a destination name registration method by the operator will be briefly described. The operator edits the destination name on the destination name input screen shown in FIG. To edit these display names, when deleting an unnecessary character from the destination name already registered in the operation unit 1, move the cursor to the character to be deleted with the arrow keys and operate the delete key to delete the characters. To do. When adding a character, the cursor is moved to the position where the character is added using the arrow keys, and the character to be added is input by a key operation similar to the input of the destination name. These characters are deleted and added, and the display name displayed on the one-touch key is edited.

  In step S706, after the destination name is input, if the operator presses the OK key indicating the end of registration in the operation unit 1 and recognizes that the key display name editing registration is not performed, for example, “Key display name is Yamagata Co., Ltd.” Is displayed on the display / notification unit 2, and the destination registration process for the designated one-touch key is terminated (step S710).

FIG. 8 shows an operation flow of fax transmission in the facsimile apparatus having the registration operation shown in FIG.
When performing fax transmission in the facsimile apparatus, the operator sets a document to be transmitted and selects a destination fax number. There are two methods for selecting a destination fax number: a method of instructing using the numeric keypad of the operation unit 1, a method of instructing using a one-touch key, or a method of instructing using an abbreviated dial or a redial key. A case where transmission is performed using a one-touch key or a numeric keypad as in the above-described embodiment will be described.

  The manuscript to be transmitted by the operator is set in the reading unit 10 and the destination fax number is input. At this time, it is determined whether the fax destination selection is input by a one-touch key or numeric keypad (step S801).

  If it is determined in step S801 that the fax destination selection has been input with the numeric keypad and the operator recognizes that the OK key has been pressed after entering the numeric keypad, the input fax number is stored in the RAM of the system control unit 3. It accumulates in the transmission destination (step S811). These managements are performed by the system control unit 3 to manage transmission destinations.

  If it is determined in step S801 that selection of a fax destination has been input with a one-touch key, it is next determined whether destination information is registered in the one-touch key (step S802). If it is determined that the destination information is not registered, an unregistered message, for example, “the selected one-touch key is not registered” is displayed on the display / notification unit 2 (step S810).

  If it is determined in step S802 that the destination information is registered in the one-touch key, the one-touch key displays that the one-touch key has been selected (step S803). For example, the LCD backlight of the one-touch key lights up, the character color of the destination name character of the one-touch key changes, the background color of the LCD of the one-touch key changes, and the character of the destination name character of the one-touch key blinks. It is carried out by a method with good visibility. The destination information displayed at this time is the first (n = 1) destination information among a plurality of address information registered in the one-touch key, and the destination name corresponding to this n = 1 is displayed. .

  Next, in response to the selected one-touch key, a message prompting the operator to confirm the fax transmission at the displayed destination is displayed and notified, for example, “Is this fax destination OK?” It is displayed on the unit 2, and it is determined whether or not an OK key has been input by the operator (step S804).

  If it is determined in step S804 that the same one-touch key has been pressed, the process returns to step S802 for the second (n = 2) destination information registered in the one-touch key, and the above processing is performed. Furthermore, when it is determined in step S804 that the same one-touch key has been pressed, the third (n = 3) is processed. As described above, when the same one-touch key is repeatedly pressed in step S804, if m are registered in the same key, n = 1 to n = m are repeatedly displayed.

  If it is determined in step S804 that the operator has pressed the OK key, the destination information displayed on the one-touch key at the time when the OK key is pressed, for example, n = 3 when registration is third. The registered fax number of the destination information is stored in the transmission destination in the RAM of the system control unit 3 (step S806). In the same manner as in the case where the fax number is selected by a method other than the one-touch key in step S811, the system control unit 3 manages the transmission destination. If it is determined in step S804 that a one-touch key different from the selected one-touch key is pressed, the process returns to step S802, and the subsequent processing is executed.

  Next, a message “Is there a destination to add?” Is displayed on the display / notification unit 2 to determine whether there is a fax destination to be added (step S807). When the operator has the next destination, If it is determined that the destination add key has been pressed, the process returns to step S801 to determine a method for inputting the next fax destination. Note that whether or not there is a next destination selection is determined by the fact that another one-touch key has been pressed even if it is not recognized that the destination addition key has been pressed. It is also possible to judge.

  If it is determined in step S807 that there is no next destination selection, it is monitored whether or not the fax transmission key is pressed (step S808). The operator presses a fax transmission key after instructing all fax destinations. If it is determined in step S808 that the fax transmission key has been pressed by the operator, the system control unit 3 instructs the communication control unit 5 to send a fax to all fax destinations stored and managed as transmission destinations. The communication control unit 5 performs fax communication with the partner facsimile machine via the NCU unit 8 (step S809).
