English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

read +‎ out

Noun[edit]

readout (plural readouts)

  1. A display, particularly one that presents numerical data.
  2. An account of the topics discussed in a meeting, especially in diplomatic or political contexts.

Usage notes[edit]

Since "read" is an input operation, the term "readout" is self-contradictory: nevertheless the word has gained widespread currency. When modishness is not desired, the simple term "display" is likely to be more appropriate.
