Video tutorials - ignitedcms - 09-12-2018

Hi guys when you watch video tutorials on saying installing Codeigniter or laravel, do you think someone speaking over the video is better than say a text box appearing below?

I want to do a video tutorial but the idea of talking is not really an ideal situation.

Any thoughts and ideas are welcome.

I think voice-over is better, you can listen to it on background, for example. But in the end of the day it's what you feel more comfortable with.

I think you're missing a trick Wink Especially when you are introducing something that is brand new, nothing beats the wow factor of a video tutorial. Of course, when you are familiar with the basics then you can refer to the documentation. There should be both.

I do agree that talking is better but you always hate the sound of your own voice, isn't that strange haha.

I was thinking some sort of subtitles or even this:

But it still sounded robotic to my liking.

Hmm, I think I'll experiment.

Thank you for your opinions!
