We will discuss speaking and writing mediums together here because they both involve the direct action of the spirit upon the physical body of the medium, and as such, have some details of mechanisms and application in common.
The faculty exercised by speaking mediums, also called psychophony, is that which permits a spirit to act upon and utilize the vocal organs of the incarnate medium to verbally transmit its message. In other words, the spirit utilizes the vocal organs, and essentially the physical body, of the medium as an instrument to communicate via the spoken word, with accompanying gestures. In this way, the spirit is able to converse "directly" with the incarnate persons who are present.
In order for this to happen, the medium enters into a mediumistic trance that allows the bonds between his spirit and his material body to loosen, whereby his spirit temporarily disengages╣ from the physical body, thereby "loaning", so to speak, his body to the communicating spirit.
╣ though only partially, i.e. always remains connected via a fluidic "chord", since complete separation would mean death.
