Speech to Text in Camtasia 2018 greyed out

Hi,

I have imported some voice narration into Camtasia Studio as .wav files that I would like to convert to Captions for Sub titles. When I click on the .wav file in the timeline and go to Captions and click on the grear icon, the option to use Speech to Text is greyed out?
Is there something I am missing?

it works OK for me

perhaps do a little screencast, host on screencast.com, showing exactly the steps you are taking

what are the WAV's specs?

Yes, even if I drag the mp3 or Wav file from the bin into the timeline it does the same.

I should also add that even dragging video files with audio, MP4 etc still keeps the Speech to text option greyed out.
