In Camtasia Studio you can actually export the audio separately that's on your timeline into either a .wav or .mp3 file format. To do this, expand the File Menu and choose Produce Special > Export audio as. The audio can be on any Audio Track on the timeline...and doesn't have to be unlinked from the Video 1 Track.

Here's an image that should help.

Ryan. That is great information. I think to add to this I would say that works great if you recorded the video using Camtasia Recorder but, when I just tried recording voice narration using PowerPoint 2010 and saving the video then importing it into Camtasia Studio 7 and exporting the audio it did not work correctly. I am using the PC Version so can you confirm if this is correct or not? Thanks Fred.

Fred. I just tested this with PowerPoint 2010 and it seemed to work fine for me. I recorded a PowerPoint presentation with the Addin Recorder...brought it into Camtasia Studio...and exported the audio (using the process described above) into both wav and mp3 successfully. If you are still experiencing issues, you may want to open a ticket with our support team to help figure out the cause. http://techsmith.custhelp.com/app/ask Thanks, Ryan

Yes,
 the image below shows saving to a .WAV file but you can select MP3 from the same drop down menu as well.

Yes you can, David. It's found under the Share menu...and choose 'Audio for Captioning'.

Hope this helps.

sitecentre101, Once you export your video you can share it in a number of ways. I think you might just want to manually upload it though. Here's a tip too: if you're using Screencast.com, you may wish to enable the download link. This will give your listeners the opportunity to stream it online as well as download it to a device of their choosing. To enable downloading, edit your content details and check this box as shown here: http://screencast.com/t/hrhbafY1Ohh

To edit content details, first make sure you are signed into Screencast.com. Next, click the piece of content. Under the content, click Edit Details. (If you don't see this option you will need to first click Show Details.)

As to the question about working with Camtasia for Mac and iMovie together, would you mind putting that in a new post? I think a lot of people would be interested in this information, and unfortunately I have no way to fork or split this topic. I'm worried the information would become lost in this thread.

Thanks for posting!
