With your video project open in Camtasia, navigate to your script and copy the narration text.
Next, open the Captions tool, and click Add Caption.
Click inside the caption editing window and paste your script.
To begin, click the gear icon, and choose Sync captions.
A screen appears with instructions on how to sync your captions.
As the project plays, listen to the narration and click a word in the script to start a new caption.
It’s important to keep in mind that a common best practice is to begin a new caption at the beginning of a sentence.
When ready, click Continue and the project begins to play immediately.
If you need to take a break, click the Pause button.
When ready to continue, click Resume.
There may be times when you’ll need to split a longer caption across two captions, or merge two separate captions into one.
Position the playhead over the selected caption and right-click the caption. Select the preferred option from the context menu.
