We have Adobe Captivate which does screen casts and more. It also supports captioning.

General info: http://www.adobe.com/accessibility/products/captivate/
Screencast demo (showing one way to add captions): http://www.adobe.com/accessibility/products/captivate/Adobe_Captivate_cc_tutorial_demo.html
