Record Voice Narration

Record Voice Narration

Use voice narration to insert a voice recording into the video. The video clips on the Timeline play in the Preview Window while recording voice narration. Camtasia Studio synchronizes the voice narration with the clips on the Timeline. The audio clip created appears on the Timeline when the voice narration ends.

You must set up a microphone before you can record voice narration.

  1. Arrange the video and complete the necessary edits before recording voice narration.
  2. Position the playhead to a frame on the Timeline or drag the playhead to select a section on the Timeline.
  3. In the Task List, select Voice Narration.
  4. The Voice Narration pane appears. Enable the Mute speakers during recording option when clips on the Timeline include audio. The microphone may record audio playing from the speakers.
  5. Select an audio track:
    • Audio 1: Add the audio clip to the Timeline and to the Clip Bin. Overwrites any existing audio linked to clips on the Video 1 track.
    • Audio 2 or Audio 3: Add the audio clip to the Timeline and to the Clip Bin. The audio clip plays in conjunction with any existing audio on the Audio 1 track.
  6. Select the recording duration:
    • Until end of selection on Timeline: Until end of selection on Timeline: Automatically ends the recording when the seek bar reaches the end of the selection on the Timeline.
