Connecting and Adjusting Your Headset for Camtasia


These instructions are based on typical Windows PC components. Your exact equipment may vary.


In order to record narration in Camtasia, it is recommended that you use a headset with a microphone for the best audio quality. This type of microphone is placed near the speaker's mouth, so it picks up your voice more clearly while reducing background noise.

Need help connecting your Headset to the Computer?

Your headset may be equipped with controls on the cord. If so, after plugging the headset into your computer, be sure that the volume is turned to about halfway and that the microphone is not muted.

Computer Sound/Volume Controls:

Sound and volume control is operating system (OS) dependent. Please choose your OS from below for more information.
