I have yet to use the closed caption feature in Camtasia, but plan on trying it out this weekend.  I heard that it doesn't do a great job with the voice recognition and getting the correct words into the caption.  I am the proud owner of an Android phone and noticed that Google is getting extremely good in speech-to-text recognition.  Are there any plans to work with Google to perfect closed captions in Camtasia?

This my friend is perfect.  My only complaint about the last one, is that i did not have the option to speed up the playback.  When it comes to learning, i like to speed up the videos.  But i see this updated one has that ability.  Thank You!

What do you use Camtasia for?  What kind of videos do you produce?  How did you become a "Champion" ?

Dan, I use Camtasia to accomplish many tasks, both for business and personal stuff

I got started with CS back with version 1 when it was called just "Camtasia"

my initial use was for documenting software apps [how-to tutorials], what I think of as classic screencasting; that is still about 50% of my use for CS

associated with the software work, I also use CS to make one-off, internal use only, how-to's that cover special process that are done rarely [like how to package an app for public distribution], but still necessary; keeps me from forgetting how to do them [believe me, I'd be lost without these special how-to's]

I also have used CS to convert all my family's many priceless VHS videos into MP4s [with player] productions [MP4s will not wear out with time like VHS tapes do]

I've also used CS to make photo slide show music videos from my extensive photo collection [25,000+]; again, these are MP4s w/player, and many have been packaged into related collections

example, our house was severely damaged by Hurricane Irene, back in Aug 2011; recovery and rebuild took 2 1/2 years; I fully documented that effort in 4,000+ photos [really helped me to manage the contractors], and packaged them into a collection of about 40 slide show videos that tell that entire story, soup-to-nuts

I've also used CS to document a 2 month camping trip I took to Alaska in 1994 [13 music video productions, and 51 narrated day trip video productions, i.e. trip logs]

I'm a big kayak-er, so I made a extensive collection [multiple versions] of slide show music videos of kayaking around the local area associated with the salt water creek I live on

of course, I also use CS to help me answer forum questions, and, I use CS to make CS How-to videos [initially for my internal use] so I don't forgot how to do something

these are just some of the ways I use CS

re "Champion", I don't really know

I was a regular contributor on the user forum that preceded this [GetSatisfaction]
forum 

when I started to respond here [some years back], the "Champion" label just showed up?
