let me speak it

These are the things you say when you are trying to gather information about something – let me see it; let me touch it; let me taste it; let me smell it; let me hear it.

Here’s another one: let me speak it.

Voice is sense, an organ of investigation, just like fingers, ears, tongue, eyes, nose. Voice brings you information not otherwise available to you.
