Q: I have a standard Bluetooth A2DP stereo headset and was wondering if it was possible to pair it with the iPad and listen to the e-reader in voiceover mode? This way, I can listen to a book wirelessly and not bother anyone.

- Greg

A: Yes, the iPad is compatible with Bluetooth A2DP headsets, and once paired all iPad audio, including Voiceover, should play through the Bluetooth headset. Note that the iPad is compatible with Bluetooth A2DP stereo headsets only—it cannot be paired with a traditional monaural Bluetooth headset designed for a cellular phone as these use the “Headset” or “Handsfree” profiles rather than the A2DP profile.
