Is this possible?

I want to make an interactive training where the student can type their name under the "fill in the blank" and their name appear in the training.  

For example if the students name is Jane:  She would type her name on the beginning screen and the next screen would say Welcome Jane.

If not, do you know of a work around?

Thanks for your time.

Hi there

This is not possible with Camtasia or SnagIt. It's difficult to tell which product you are asking about. But as neither really supports this feature, it really doesn't matter.

However, it IS possible using a product named Adobe Captivate. And it may also be possible using a product named Articulate Storyline.

Cheers... Rick :)

Agree with Rick. It's super simple to do in Articulate Storyline. You can import your video into Storyline and add the functionality there. However, the final product will be a packaged file that you'll need to upload to a web server or LMS. It won't be a flat mp4 that can be uploaded to a video streaming server.
