* In ''EternalDarkness'', at the beginning of the second flashback, that level's character is (somewhat dramatically) reading a book about the defeat of Mantorak aloud. After about thirty seconds, the scene fades into a separate flashback of the event, with the understanding that this is what she's seeing in her head.

* Played with in ''Theatre/{{Nunsense}}'': During the skit where three nuns try and sell their cookbook, they read it aloud for the audience's benefit as there is no fourth wall, and they know that the audience is there. However, one of the nuns, Sister Amnesia, is a little on the slow side and has to be prodded into reading her recipe out loud.

Added DiffLines:

* In an early episode of ''Series/{{Lost}}'', Sawyer shows Kate a letter supposedly written to him by a little boy. When she stops reading, he says "Oh don't stop now!" implying the most dramatic part of the letter is yet to come. It partially happens again in a season three episode, when Sawyer hands the letter to [[spoiler: Anthony Cooper, the person it's intended for]], ordering him to read it. But this time the letter isn't read in its entirety, so presumably, the audience is expected to know what it contains. (Also, in the second setting, the reading-out-loud is a bit more natural.)
* ''Series/VeronicaMars'': In the second episode, Veronica discovers that the student who hired her double crossed her by making her look for his deceased dad, who he knew was dead. She confronts him with a copy of his school records which she demands he read aloud.

* Always subverted in ''SheepInTheBigCity'': whenever Sheep looks at a sign or something, we hear an old man's voice reading it -- cue panning over to the old man who would then say, "I like to read."

* Alot of kids cartoons do this to benefit those that can't read yet. In fact, when ''WoodyWoodpecker'' cartoons started airing on TV they often dubbed in Woody reading signs because of this.
* When cartoons that was originally pantomime (''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'', ''PinkPanther'') are imported to other countries its common for them to actually give these characters VOICES for the sole purpose of having someone read the English signs in another language. Another variant is having a narrator read it.

* The necessary defining character moment of any episode of ''InspectorGadget''. He constantly reads his otherwise secret assignment letter aloud, including the clause where [[ThisPageWillSelfDestruct the message will self-destruct]], then carelessly tosses it and it accidentally lands near or on the Chief just prior to exploding.

* Film/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).

Justified InUniverse as happening because Terri is [[BlackAndNerdy socially isolated]], and so talks to herself a lot.
