How To Do Voice Over Narration From A Captions SRT

I've recently had to do a lot of voice-overs to replace poor quality original narrations in numerous projects.

To save time, I've worked out a fast and simple protocol for doing this.  Essentially, I create voice narration clips while keying off existing original project captions.  Fortunately, in these instances, the captions happen to exactly match the original narration duration times.   The original captions are exported as an SRT, and a new project started with only the imported SRT as content.  Then, voice narration is used to create the voice overs, while watching the captions for guidance.  When finished, the new voice overs are exported as a single WAV, which is substituted for the narration in the original project.  During this process, the captions can also be edited, if required, and then exported as an SRT to replace the ones in the original project.

I've made a tutorial demonstrating this method, and added it to my public collection of Camtasia Studio Tutorials
