Patent Number: 8,879,093

Title: Communication apparatus, control method, and storage medium for converting document information or image information input as a file into transmission data and transmitting the obtained data

Abstract: A control method for controlling a communication apparatus used for transmitting a file with efficiency and reliability according to a time required for the conversion processing when a file as a transmission object is converted into transmission data, and the control method includes converting an input file into transmission data, transmitting the transmission data obtained by the conversion processing, measuring a time required for the conversion processing, and controlling the communication apparatus based on the measured time so that, if a file whose time required for the conversion processing is greater than a predetermined value is to be transmitted, communication with the destination is started and the transmission data is transmitted after the conversion processing is executed, and if a file whose time required for the conversion processing is not greater than the predetermined value is to be transmitted, the conversion processing is executed after the communication with the destination is started, and the transmission data obtained by the conversion processing is transmitted.
