Screen Recording On Mac

macOS and Mac Apps


I'm aware that this has been discussed before in similar forum topics but I still haven't found a solution to my problem. I have a MacBook running the latest version of MacOS and am trying to record my screen, internal audio (VoiceOver speech and such), and microphone audio simultaneously in order to demonstrate an accessibility glitch for the developers of a website. I have experimented with QuickTime and found that it wasn't very accessible; I've also tried a free app called TechSmith Capture, which didn't work either. Does anyone have a recommendation for free screen recording software?

Have you tried the native screen recording facility on macOS, most quickly accessed by pressing Command Shift 5? In my experience, I am able to click the options button in that window, select my microphone, and then click the record button to start recording. In these recordings, I can hear microphone audio, as well as VoiceOver and other system audio.
