Add Text (caption) to Presenter 8 Video/Screen Cap

Oct 24, 2012 9:09 AM

Can I add a text caption to the recording? It's pretty easy to do in Snagit so I though Presenter 8 could do it. Thans. --Michael

    Presenter has no method of adding captions to a presentation. The best option is to put the text in the notes section of PPT, thus having the text show in the Notes pane in the side bar. Alternatively, you could put text on the PPT slide and use entrance/exit animations to have that text appear and disappear when relevant.

    One of the Presenter 8 webinars mentions a feature to add captions -

    "Become the Superstar of your University’s Online Course Catalog" available at

    at 180510&loc=en_us. Is that some extension that has to be installed.

    ClosedCaption feature is added in Adobe Presenter Video Creator  8.1 and onwards. It generates CC automatically, using speech to text recognition.
