I found this route. It's a bit of a faff but it produced decent results.  Firstly in Powerpoint, you create an animation of the writing. There are a number of youtube videos out there on how to do it, I used this one:

Once you done this (essentially creating a slide in Powerpoint), you can then save as Mpeg and incorporate into your story.
