I use Camtasia studio 8 and am very satisfied with it.  You get the best quality voice over with voice narration versus recording while you are screencasting.

I suggest doing a first run through with voice over,  then separating the voice and video and rerecording using voice narration.

Feel free to repost with questions.

Hi ,
Thanks for your valuable input . Well i have tried Camstasia and AVS Software both and as you have mentioned earlier, i too agree on using Camstasia as user friendly product. But my concern is , how will i add notes, if i dont use voice. Lets say for eg:
1. I click on windows and browser with particular site . I want to add a note below or side saying " this site is secured, hence it is mandatory to start with https ...etc " . Currently i keep word / notepad on and placed sideways , with this content type for the user to understand .

I hope you have understood my concern . I would like to try the voice part but that would be the later stage once this is sucessful :) .

Regards,
SID

Ah easiest way in my opinion is to use callouts. You cam cut and paste from word to the callout. Alternatively. You can use the PowerPoint plug-in and create the tutorial that way.

Note that if you are looking for free alternatives, E-E recommends Microsoft Expressions Encoder.  I haven't used it myself though.
