By Jorge, 29 July, 2018 Forum Hardware and Accessories Hello, Can I use an iPad to open and work with txt files and use dictation and speech the same way as with MacBook Pro? Thank you, Jorge Options Log in or register to post comments Comments Hi, Hi, I don't recommend dictation using the apple native dictation. If you're wanting to use the iPad with .txt files, I'm sure Pages will open/read them just fine. If you're using an iPad, use a bluetooth keyboard, otherwise it's difficult to work with documents. I don't have an iPad, but I do have a macbook pro, and for my needs it works fine. It's a 2016 MBP with touch bar.
