I think the recommended way to do something like this would be using Inset:
Show[
Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}],
Graphics[Inset[
Style[" Text ", Medium, FontFamily -> "Helvetica"],
{1, 0.5}, {0, 0}, 1, {1/2, 1/Sqrt[2]}
]]
]
or
Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10},
Epilog -> Inset[
Style[" Text ", Medium, FontFamily -> "Helvetica"],
{1, 0.5}, {0, 0}, 1, {1/2, 1/Sqrt[2]}
]
]
you might want to look up the various arguments of inset an their
meanings in the documentation...
