Is there a function for this in expo?

Can someone help me please? I am trying to run this code for open ai whisper transcription but the issue is that expo react native doesn’t have the fs.createReadStream() function.

const transcribedText = await{
  model: "whisper-1", // The model to use for transcription.
  file: fs.createReadStream(audioURI), // The audio file to transcribe. 
  response_format: 'string', // The format of the transcription.
  temperature: 1, // Temperature
  language: 'en' // Language

Is there an equivalent function I could use in expo react native instead?
