Jing is more or less a subset of Camtasia with a limited production preset
designed for short quick captures. The full version of Camtasia hers support
for captioning as well as a choice of output formats. http://techsmith.com.
I use it for my order tutorials (not all of which are currently captioned
but I'm adding captions as time permits.)

I recently used the free service Jing http://www.jingproject.com/ to create
some "screencasts" only to realize that they are not accessible. I tried to
figure out if there was a way to caption them, but was not able to
accomplish this. I believe Jing creates content in Flash video.

Does anyone know of an accessible alternative. I guess I am willing to pay
for something, but would prefer open source.
