Automatic De-Breath on a .mov (QT) file

A friend of mine is producing instructional videos where the only audio is his voice, and his problem is that his breaths are too loud. He's tried moving his neck-worn microphone into different positions and couldn't reduce the breaths enough.

Short of practicing his breathing technique, is there a program, or a combo of program+plugin that will open a QuickTime (.mov) movie, automatically reduce breaths based on a couple of simple settings (like eg 'threshold' and 'amount'), and spit out another QT .mov (or save it in the source file) ?

Preferably it would be a free or a cheap program.

I've never heard of anything like this. Realistically, He'll probably have to learn how to do VO without the heavy breathing or edit the breathing to a point where it is acceptable, or hire someone else to do his VO work for the videos.

Thanks Geo. He'll have to learn to split the sound and the picture, de-breath, and then join them back together.

I'll check out Audacity and some free gate VSTs.

I don't know anything that would do it automatically to a QuickTime, but I do know a couple of plugins that can help reduce breathing noise automatically:
DeBreath Vocal Plugin | Waves
iZotope Nectar | Complete Vocal Suite: Overview | 11 tools and effects including automatic pitch correction, manual note editor, style presets
