I don't think that's possible with Premiere. You can't tell it to capture your screen. You can plug a camera in and record what the camera is reading through firewire or another capture card but not the screen.
For screen recordings, you'd probably need something like this:

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I saw that camtasia software, and while it looks impressive I really need something that has the speech-to-text capabilities. I have MacDictate (Dragon) but the Premiere CS4 has speech to text that actually syncs up to the timeline of the sequence. So if I search on "bulldog" and I have one occurrence of it somewhere in the middle of my sequence than I could take the user right to that point in the move. Catch my drift? I'd hate to have to film my screen from my camera but I may end up doing that in this case.... maybe someone else will come up with something clever. If I get a stroke of genius (very unlikely at this late hour) I'll be sure to post. Thanks again for your input.
You can use camtasia to capture your screen/narration then use Pr to do the speech transcription; if you like.
Thanks for the reply.
How would you setup Premeire to do the speech to text on a screen capture? And would the sequence stay in time with the speech transcription? What am I missing?
The result of a screen capture/narrartion using camtasia is a video file.
So, you just import it into Pr and run speech transcription on it.
Or; of course you cold record the voice over separately and bring it in as a separate audio file.
... so simple I looked right passed it.
I'll give it a try and let you know how it goes. Thanks for pointing out the obvious to me!
