A method and apparatus are described for the electronic delivery of a document, originated at a local site by a source which has a printer output that normally is connected to a printer, to one or more remote locations having printers or display devices which may differ from the printer normally connected to the printer output of the document generating source. Printer command signals which normally are provided at the printer output are converted to character and position data which represent the respective characters and their horizontal and vertical positions on each page of the document. The character and position data are transmitted to a remote location, either directly or via a distribution unit which transmits a document to one or more remote locations, whereat the data is reconverted to a form for driving a printer or other display device, resulting in a line-for-line conforming copy of the original.
