I mean, it depends a lot on the reader, but there's something about people reading information that I just "get". That is, I don't ever really zone out when I'm listening, and I can listen for hours, even if I'm not paying attention, what people say just kinds of seeps in to my head. Plus, with tone and the way things are usually written, I can fill in the gaps if I do miss something pretty well.
