Help needed for viewing subtitle files from sd card or usb storage

I need help
I make an application to view subtitle files for my android satellite receiver (android 7)
I can read files from device storage (storage/emulated/0)
But when I use SD card or USB I can see the files but i cannot read them

just replace dir file:///system/xbin with your SD card path

I checked it on a Galaxy Note8 (Android 9) from the external storage and removable micro SDcard. But my Android 11 test devices don’t have a removable SD card, so I was only able to test it on the external storage (and it works).

But maybe someone can check it on an Android 11+ device with a removable SDcard.
I think it should work there too. But I want to be sure.

@bodymindpower can you please check my aia project as it doesn’t work with me
I do not know where is the problem i make all the block as the picture you send but efile do not get text from any file

Browsestorage.aia (53.8 KB)

Exactly, always use the latest extension versions.
