PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To quickly send a document to be sent with priority by providing an interrupt means that interrupts transmission of a document during transmission based on a discrimination result after a reception means accepts a document to be sent with priority. SOLUTION: The facsimile equipment is provided with a means that accepts a document to be sent with priority, a means that discriminates a time till the document during transmission is finished, and a means that interrupts transmission of the document being sent when the document to be sent with priority is received. Whether or not the facsimile equipment is busy with communication at present is discriminated and a file table is retrieved when the facsimile equipment is busy with communication (3401, 3402). Whether or not a document whose communication type indicates 'interrupt transmission' is in existence is discriminated (3403). When the corresponding document is in existence in the case of caller transmission (3404), whether or not a remaining time required for transmission of the document during the caller transmission is long is discriminated (3405), and when longer, a request of an interrupt report is outputted. Then the document state in the file table of the document during caller transmission is set to 'continuous call wait' (3407) and line interrupt is requested.
【課題】 割込送信を不都合なく行なうことのできるフ ァクシミリ装置を提供する。
【解決手段】 割込送信の文書が登録されているときに （♯３４０３でＹＥＳ）、発呼送信中であるかが判定さ れ（♯３４０４）、その送信の残り時間が長い場合に は、回線を切断し（♯３４０７、♯３４０８）、割込送 信を優先させる。送信残り時間が短い場合には（♯３４ ０５でＮＯ）、回線は切断しない。
