Would you like to make a video tutorial to teach your family, friends, or YouTube visitors how to work with specific software or app? We've got the best tool for you. In this post, we're going to introduce the best free screen and voice recorder that can record your activities on computer's or iPhone's screen with your voice included. Obviously, recording both screen and your commentary at the same time can make your audience understand what you teach much easier and faster.
Certainly, you can also use the screen recorder we recommend to record gameplay, video chats, live streams (YouTube live streams for instance), and anything on your screen with audio.
How to Record Windows or Mac Screen with Audio/Voice
First of all, we should download and install VideoProc on computer. Once done, open VideoProc and follow the steps below to perform screen recording with audio on Windows (10/8/7) or Mac for free.
Step 1. Manage recording settings before start screen capturing.
Click Recorder and then click the gear icon at the top right corner. From the drop-down list, choose Settings and then you can specify recording quality, format, audio device, audio level, encoder, camera device, shortcut keys, and more, as shown in the screenshot.
Step 2. Go back to Recorder interface, select Screen as the recording mode and then your screen will be loaded to the window.
Step 3. Select recording area and audio.
By default, it will capture full screen. If you just want to record a certain part of your screen, simply click Crop and then click and drag your mouse to select the region you want to record.
If you haven't chosen audio device in Settings panel, you can perform this task here. Enable system audio and/or microphone audio, and click dropdown buttons to select desired audio device.
Step 4. Click REC if all settings are finished. Then, this screen and audio recorder will count down in no time. While recording, you can use shortcut keys (default: Ctrl + T) to open Paint Tool which allows you to type texts, draw arrows and lines, and more, to explain or highlight something.
Step 5. Stop recording by pressing hotkeys (default: Ctrl + R) or clicking the STOP button on this screen and sound recorder. The resulting files named for dates will be immediately presented on the right column of VideoProc.

VideoProc is not only a free screen and voice recorder, it also acts as a video editor and converter, a DVD converter, an audio converter, and a video/music downloader. So you can use VideoProc to make some edits to your recording files. For example, you can cut off some segments, crop out a certain area, merge multiple recordings into a single one, split a long large recording into smaller parts, add watermark or subtitle to your video, and convert your video to GIF.
