Plain and simple, there is no better way than to use DID/DNIS or a
separate line+modem for each recipeint. Looking for some other way to
route faxes will ulimately result in something less-reliable, although
less expensive up-front.
I am considering forcing
senders to use
a standardized cover page which I can then convert to text and parse.
While you're at it (forcing senders to do stuff) could you force them
to send a subaddress (SUB)? You can route based on subaddressing. You
wouldn't need any OCR application for that. Some fax machines don't
have that capability, however, so that may not work for you.
faxes can come from anywere, so TSI and CSI won't work.
I think that you mean TSI and CID. CSI is the called station
identification (you, the receiver).
Is there a simple way to extract the text contents of a received fax?
Look through the archives for "OCR".
