Judy,

The videos and captions produced by Camtasia are in standard
formats, so whether or not they are keyboard accessible depends
entirely on how they are presented to the user. Videos can be
presented in a way which is incredibly keyboard accessible:

    http://tube.majestyc.net/?v=IPl_DnQPA0U
    Completely meets WCAG 2.1

Halfway decently keyboard accessible:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPl_DnQPA0U
    Succeeds on WCAG 2.1.1, but fails 2.2.2, no keyboard trap.

Or not even remotely keyboard accessible:

    http://vimeo.com/25191029
    Fails on WCAG 2.1

Camtasia was probably used to produce all of those videos. The
trick in making them accessible is all in what tools you use to
present them to the user.
