Hi all,

Just writing to see what the "state of the union" is with
screencasting tools between Captivate, Camtasia, and free alternatives
like Wink. Any thoughts on the most recent versions of these?

My particular need is just to make quick screencasts with some audio,
no background music necessary. Two types:

1. Going through and talking through a PowerPoint slideshow.
2. Going through and talking through web or application screens.

Create HTML or Microsoft Word content and convert to Help file formats or
printed documentation. Features include support for Windows Vista & 2007
Microsoft Office, team authoring, plus more.

True single source, conditional content, PDF export, modular help.
Help & Manual is the most powerful authoring tool for technical
documentation. Boost your productivity!
