Do you mean that you'd like to add subtitles or a voice-over to your video?
Anybody know of any software package that allows real time text annotation. I'd like to annotate during capture.

Subtitles - real time text generation
This is surely a case for a video editor isn't it? I don;t know of an app that you're describing but I know for a fact that I wouldn't use one even it it did and it was my sort of tool. I simply wouldn't trust myself to type accurately and at the correct speed at capture time.
You can subtitle in a video editor. However, my experience tells me it's more the domain of DVD production.
Why do you think you need to do this in real time at time of capture?
Speed - text overlay after capture increases DVD production time 3fold. Everything I film must be identified on screen.
I already have a video typewriter but as I burn direct to hard disc I hoped I could find a package that would allow me to use the laptop keyboard and ditch this unit and save on batteries too.
