At the end of the initial term, Cielo24 will aggregate usage to determine the appropriate pricing tier for the subsequent terms. (See the Cielo24 Agreement for the complete tiered pricing levels.)

The Standard AD product utilizes existing gaps in dialogue and audio to provide plot-relevant descriptions of visual elements.
Extended descriptions allows you to pause the video content in order to make room for description, as needed. This may be available upon request, depending on technological variables, including video player in use on client-side.
Upon completion, the video descriptors are integrated with the audio transcript for screen reader synthesization. Turnaround times can be customized at the point of order and delivery options will vary based on the video player(s) in use. We provide voice synthesis as a narration option, however, voiceovers are not currently offered.
