How to search for still images with "voice memo" audio files embedded

My Fujifilm X series cameras allow me to record a voice memo that is imported with the image file into Lightroom Classic. It's a separate WAV file that shows up in LR's metadata panel when present.

The entire "audio file" row disappears when there's no audio file.

 

See attached MacOS Finder  screenshot and screenshot from Library > Metadata.

 

Is there a way to search metadata for images that have this audio sidecar? I don't see anything in the Metadata Search dropdown for this.

 

See attached images.

I don't believe there's any built-in method of filtering / searching for images with 'Voice Annotations'. However, the 'Any Filter' plugin by John Ellis https://johnrellis.com/lightroom/anyfilter.htm  has an option for filtering on 'Wav' files John is a frequent participant on this forum. So, should be able to explain how it works if you need help.

@IanLyons Wow, that is just perfect! Exactly what I was looking for. I've now located all my images with WAV notes.

 

Thanks so much. Very appreciated.
