I believe there are challenges with the accessibility of playback controls
generated automatically from Camtasia  but developers can add their own
controls via HTML/JavaScript that can be made accessible.

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.
