Camtasia Tutorial 10: Closed Captioning features

Part 10 of a 15 part series.
This tutorial describes how to create a closed caption file within Camtasia.  To view how YouTube translates the closed caption file, click the CC button on the YouTube Player. You’ll notice that the bottom of the video is black, this is the space Camtasia makes for the Captions, but each video sharing site may process the file a little differently. This black bar can be removed within the Camtasia Project.  Within Closed Captions, click on the “On Video/Under Video” button in the upper right hand side of the bin.

    This is something I’ve always wondered about in tutorial videos. I know YouTube experimented with voice-recognition captions for videos but they were always pretty bad. Specifying exactly what you want to appear makes a lot more sense–even if it is more work.

    It’s fascinating how much you can do with Camtasia. I like that the captions you write also appear ont he timeline so you can line them up where you want them. Thanks for another clear and informative tutorial!
