  1. Navigate to the folder where you saved the audio.

  2. Even though the file might appear "greyed out" or unavailable, don't worry. Simply long-press that audio file. If a popout menu appears when you long-press, don't select any option in it. Instead, simply tap the audio file icon once again and that should select it.
