Question Mac Plug-In Issues

How can I get Access Aide and Prince PDF plug-ins to work on Mac Sierra systems?

I was able to get epub3-itizer to work, but not the above. Has anyone else had issues with Sigil plug-ins on mac?

Question Mac plug-in issues

I also got EpubCheck to work, but not the above. I downloaded Prince Mac to my computer (for the Prince PDF plug-in) but I'm having trouble installing it--maybe this is what's causing Prince PDF not to work. But I have no idea why Access-Aide is not working. I made sure to install Active Tcl Community Edition, but it did not help. Does anyone have any suggestions about this issue?

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Considering that the creator of the Access Aide plugin (and several other plugins) uses a Mac for development, I can safely say that it should work.

Having said that ... you should probably bring up your specific issues in the dedicated threads for each of those plugins. They're found in the Plugin section of the Sigil forums. There's an alphabetical plugin index list in the sticky area there. The more details, the better. Make sure you include exact warning/error messages you're getting.

Access-Aide is pure python and should work out of the box on MacOSX with no issues. Did you download the zip archive (do NOT unzip it) and manually move it out of your Downloads folder? Then use Sigil's Plugin Manager to intall the plugin? What errors are you getting? What exact version Sigil are you using?

I take that back. There is one compiled executable in Access-Aide that I had forgotten about. That executable converts svg images into a quick thumbnail for use in checking for alt settings on images.

Perhaps that is the problem? Please post any error messages in my specific Access-Aide plugin thread and I would be happy to track it down and get something to work for you.

Question Mac Plug-In Issues

Yes, I downloaded the zip archive and did not unzip it. I manually moved it out of my Downloads folder before. I used Sigil's Plugin Manager to install the plugin.

I'm using Sigil Version 0.9.10.

I'm getting this error when I open try to use Access-Aide:

Status: failed
Processing an epub with version: 3.0
Updating the content.opf with accessibility schema
Error: proper aria accessibility roles can not be set for javascripted applications .... aborting

Thank you for your time. I appreciate your help.

That is not a failure. The plugin ran but aborted because your epub uses javascript which can be used to add, remove, and change tags and attributes which would be an issue. If you need to use Access-Aide, disable the java-script usage, remove it from the manifest properties, run Access-Aide, and re-enable your javascripts and rebuild the manifest properties.

Question

Thank you for your help. I disabled javascript through Adobe Acrobat Reader, but I'm unable to find a solution for erasing the manifest properties. I googled it but was unable to find info on how to do this. Do you have any suggestions on this or can you direct me to a page/website where I can access this information?

This has nothing to do with Acrobat Reader. Somehere in your xhtml code is a script tag that is javascript. These need to be removed or commented out. Then in your content.opf in the manifest are a list of properties for each manifested items. You need to remove "script" or "scripted" from any of those property attributes.

Scripting is only supported in epub3 and even then not every reader will accept them (ie. the Kindle readers for example).

Scripting may/will interfere with Accessibility and definitely is not allowed in AccessAide.

Hope this helps,

KevinH
