Would they need to know how to read or write? I mean, if most of their orders were issued verbally, or through Sauron's mind, which controlled all the Orcs, they wouldn't need to learn how to read or write. Only Sauron's spies would need to.
But Melkor also was there, and he came to the house of Fanor, and there he slew Finw King of the Noldor before his doors, and spilled the first blood in the Blessed Realm; for Finw alone had not fled from the horror of the Dark.
