- Select the more button.
- Download braille from this new window by selecting the Download and install braille button.
- After braille is installed, then return to Settings > Accessibility > Narrator > Braille.

Allowing OneDrive storage alert and subscription management in Settings
Microsoft has allocated Standalone 100GB subscriptions for OneDrive in the Accounts page within Settings, which is similar to the Microsoft 365 subscriptions. Now, you can check your recurring billing, payment method, and OneDrive storage usage within Windows 11. What’s more, you will be also notified on the same page once your usage will reach the OneDrive storage limit.
