In person a person may say something like the following:
I would really like to hear what you have to say about X.
On a forum (or other forms of written communication), I often see similar ideas being expressed using the word "hear." Of course, with such communication, the vast majority of the people involved will actually read what the other person has to say. As such, I am looking for an alternative to "hear" that can be used as a drop-in replacement in as many cases as possible.
Also, I know I am probably being a bit pedantic by not just using "hear," but, I would still like to know something that can more accurately convey such ideas.
