    I'm planning on adding how to videos to my site (flash) so that its easier for my customer to understand how to use a page. Ie instead of trying to explain common things in a FAQ I would have a video actually showing them.

    Ideally I'll be able to record my actions on screen and my voice as I describe what I'm doing. I'm willing to pay for the app, but just not that much ie less than $100. Now I don't need an all in one, for instance if there is a free app to do screen recording and another free app that can record my voice and another to merge them together I'm fine with that. I understand that free is free and I have to deal with some of the headaches.

    Any advice as to what software I would need. A quick google for mac screen recording brings a bunch of results, so any help would be appreciated.

    tons of them

    There are dozens of them out there.
    Screenium and ishowu come to mind. I tried them both they are alright. I think both set you back around $20 but they have trial versions. And then there is screenflow which seems the complete app for me but it is $100 but it let's edit the screencast in the program. I think it looks great but I have no excuse to get it so I can't tell you more about it. They might have a trial version too.
