If a non-media file is NOT created by the app itself, it cannot be read / accessed from one of the Shared folders /Download or /Documents or any other arbitrary folder of the external storage (outside the ASD) on Android 11+. You must use SAF.

Where does the text file come from?

I do read first 2 post before create this topic.

This text file is download from my PC and put into /Download

Then ...

on Android 11+ to access it.

But even with SAF you cannot access files in the Shared folder /Download, but in /Documents or any another folder - exept the root directory of the external storage.

Put the text file in assets, then copy it to /Download and read it from there. Or upload it to Google Drive, then download it to the ASD and read it from there.
