OK perhaps not many people know about the following website, but it is truly an outstanding resource for when you need sound FX. It is called http://www.sounddogs.com.

Do a keyword search for "teletype".

It is really neither. It is a "movie logic" sound like spaceships in starwars saying "whooosh" when they fly by. In movies computers always write slowly across the screen, and make sounds when they do so :-)

In Hunt for red October it is sort of a high pitched beeping sound that comes with each letter.

I can't remember the exact sound in Red October, but a common sound used in movies is radioteletype.

Is this the sound?

Go back to sound dogs, a couple of the soundbytes in the conputer section under computer telemetry readout, down towards the bottom, sound really close.

Kevin,

I've been looking for that same sound forever...I can't believe it's so hard to find since so many movies use it now. Practically every military or sci-fi flick that has text printed across the screen uses it.

I'll let you know if I find it...
