* JumpinJackFlash does this to an extreme, due to the amount of online chatting Jerri does with Jack -- she even says what ''she's'' typing, so we don't have to keep the camera on that, either. Becomes half-VoiceoverLetter after Jerri hears Jack's voice, we then hear his voice when he types (as she imagines it).

* In ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'', the Marauder's Map insults Snape when he tries to use it (after taking it from Harry). No problem in the book, but in the film, they had [[JustifiedTrope Snape tell Harry]] to read it aloud, like a teacher catching a student passing a note in class.

The main way to [[AvertedTrope avert this trope]] is to have a voiceover of the writer instead (see VoiceoverLetter). Can be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] if you have them reading to another character whilst they continue searching the room or what have you.

!!Examples * In ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'', there is a weird halfway version. When Harry writes in Riddle's diary, he sounds out his words as he writes them. (If Harry does that whenever he does writing, it must be very annoying to work on homework with him.) At the same time, Harry doesn't read Riddle's responses aloud. Instead, the camera just zooms in on what Riddle wrote.

* In ShriekIfIKnowWhatYouDidLastFridayThe13th, one character literally has to sound out the death threat the killer left him (he's an illiterate drunk). IIRC, he gives up when he gets the word "Chanukkah"
