Typing utility for typing within a UI for a product demo

I checked out a couple of cool solutions for typing a slide on screen, but that's not typing into a product UI for a product demo...

It would be handy to have a tool that will type out a planned string of text while recording within a product UI. I like the action of on-screen typing while explaining a UI feature - having the entire string suddenly appear loses something in the translation.

There'd need to be a way to indicate the field location and some way to kick it off...but...

Whatcha think?

Yes, I agree.  I wish there was an easy method to showing typing in a video.

  You could always add this as a text callout in the video post-processing using Studio or C:Mac, but if that isn't sufficient, I have used tools like AutoHotKey to perform this sort of function in the past.  It's more techy in nature so it may not serve your needs.

  If others need this feature in our products I would encourage you to give this thread a "Me Too" so we can better gauge the level of interest.  Thank you!
