Explanation of what I'm looking for:

  • Real time drawing/inking with stylus over what you are recording on the screen
  • Palm rejection*
  • Pressure sensitivity preferable

I use a Windows 8.1 laptop (ThinkPad Yoga generation 1) and a Wacom EMR pen.

What happens when I try the program ShowMore mentioned in this answer:

  • Attempting to draw on top of a YouTube video will just click the video and pause it
  • At least when I tried it, my penstrokes with my stylus only created straight lines
  • It's not inking (there's a specific definition for inking though I'm not sure what it is but think like OneNote's inking for example)

* Palm rejection refers to a touch screen's ability to "reject" or ignore the presence of a palm during the process of drawing or signature capture. Palm rejection capabilities allows for accurate on-screen drawing and for capturing of a more accurate signature.

  • You're almost looking for "sports teleprompter" behavior... where you can do the play-by-play on a live screen without interrupting it.

  • What program would be my best bet? This thread isn't over- when I try to write with my digitizer using the program below, it does not work - the program keeps thinking I'm trying to draw a line from some point far off the screen instead of pen strokes. And it is not inking

1 Answer 1


So your requirements are:

  1. Record screen with your voice in.
  2. Draw in the video in real-time.

As far as I'm concerned, the online recorder ShowMore can meet your needs.

It can record the screen with microphone sound, and in the meanwhile, during recording, there is a pen icon on the bottom toolbar, which you can use to draw lines, arrows and texts in the video in real time.

For your convenience, I attached this screenshot. :)

Interface of ShowMore

  • When I tried it: no palm rejection, can only draw straight lines with the paint brush for some reason. If I try drawing on top of a youtube video, I will end up clicking the video instead and pausing it.

  • That's strange. The paint brush works fine on my computer, just like in the screenshot. The text input does have a little bug (sometimes pause video, other options won't). You can ask their support service for solving the problems.
