Transcription with Visual Description:

Transcription with Visual description rates depend on the visual complexity of the material. We provide a low – medium – and high-density pricing model for description of video content within a 508 compliant transcript.

  • Low Density Visual Content — $8 per minute
  • Medium Density Visual Content — $12 per minute
  • High Density Visual Content — $14-$16 per minute

Each transcript must be remediated for 508 compliance in PDF format. Each project is subject to a minimum $110 remediation fee. Remediation labor for 508 transcripts is billed at a rate of $110 per hour for each additional hour required for compliance. Typically, it takes 1 hour to remediate 508 transcripts for up to 2 hours of content.
