Explanatory voices

Rob suggested the following for some research avenues:

Perhaps what all these have in common is that they are all a kind of additional voice explaining what you are looking at. This suggests that a theoretical approach could be to look at writer-reader relations, reader response criticism, semiotics (what is best communicated by what channel).
I think you need to start with some kind of definition, out if which might come your line of enquiry.
In terms of research, there may be stuff on TV/film subtitling, although I’m not well versed in it. There could also be material on picture captions, or at least the way that pictures and text work together – as a start, you could look in the world of educational psychology. Names include Dwyer, Winn & Holliday, Duchastel.
