    This post has ended up in the  iChat Community.


    It seems to relate to iChat Theatre which can display as the Video feed different type of document.


    1) Is what you are writing on the computer ?

    I.e. TextEdit, Keynote or Powerpoint or Word Document


    If so use the iChat Theatre item in the File Menu and navigate to the file.

    This will use QuickLook to display the item as the Video feed.


    2) If you are pointing the camera to a piece of paper that has something written on it it will depend which version of iChat you are using.

    Up to iChat 4 (Leopard OS X 10.5.x) you could use this Utility which has a Flip ability.


    In Later version you have to take a pic in PhotoBooth and flip it there and then Share it in iChat afterwards.
