    Although Electron apps are generally lacking with regard to accessibility
    features, there are some ways of enabling some of these, for example
    when launching with the --force-renderer-accessibility switch.

    Buka doesn’t have that ability, which makes it of no use for visually-impaired users.

    I am getting Segmentation Fault when trying to run Appimage. Screenshot from 2021-11-13 20-55-50

    This is the latest release I just downloaded. Any Idea how to correct it? Buka is not available in Solus repos.

    I've been wanting to develop an application like this for so long but couldn't wrap my head around what exactly that I wanted. There's a few features that I thing would improve this application so much.

    1. Be able to rename the files and change it's title and author properties and have them changed on actual filename too.
    2. Tags. I want to add tags to the books about the subject and its content. Then I want to be able to quickly search through them.
    3. List view with Title, Author and Tags.
    4. A debounce on the search input. Seriously, it is annoying the flashing you get every time you add a letter to the search field.
