Hi Team,
I have a requirement while recording my videos using Camtasia.
That is, I do not want to record "Keyboard Strokes Noise and Mouse Clicks Noise".
Currently, while I am typing while I am speaking and keyboard typing noise is bit disturbing,
Is it possible? If so how to do it.

Currently you'll have to either use voice-over, or be silent whilst typing - then mute those parts of the soundtrack. - Guess you have disabled system sounds, so it is just the sounds from the room you are hearing, and that you are not using internal microphone in the machine.

Hi Erik,
Thank you for the quick reply.

I have already unchecked "Record System Audio".

I do record in a Home Theatre (Sound Proof Cabin).

My issue is not any kind of background noise.

I have seen in some online training videos, while the author is typing, I don't hear any keyboard strokes noise.

Currently, is there a facility in Camtasia, that it doesn't record keystrokes sound?

Seems to me that you are using the internal microphone - check options in the recording window to make sure that you are recording from the correct device.

Hi I am using HeadPhone. Is it not the right option?

I was thinking that the system would not automatically switch to that microphone. see Tools - Options- Inputs - Audio Device

The only way to avoid recording unwanted sound? Is to not allow the mic to pick it up in the first place.
Keyboards and Mice can make a lot of noise. Microphones will pick up that noise.

There are quiet keyboards and mice available. https://www.quietpc.com/keyboard-mouse

I don't a quiet keyboard. I use a gaming mouse as well. Neither of them are quiet.If you do some research, read some user reviews and speak to  manufactures. That's might be the best way to go.
I use a directional headset mic with sound canceling.It blocks out most unwanted noise from anywhere in the room. However, not the keyboard and mouse because they are positioned directly in front of me.That's
the same direction  mic records from, so that noise still comes through.

You can remove some mouse click noise using a audio editing program but that requires targeting the noise. Eliminating it partially or in it's entirety. Aggressive removal of loud noises will have adverse affects on the overall sound quality.

Regards,Joe

Hi uksarma. I was having issues with camtasia recording even the spacebar when I was recording from PowerPoint. I couldn't find any settings that would cause this directly in camtasia, but when I went to powerpoint and choose Add-Ins then went to Camtasia properties, I found that I had to choose my Yeti microphone manually and uncheck the box "Capture System Audio". Hope that helps.
