there are two options
--have the image as the background image of li, then you can have the text over it
--overlay the text on top of image by increasing the z-index of the text element

I want to use the second one, and i changed the z-index, but apperntly it didn't do the job.
in which element should I change the z-index?
at the moment had one in <ul> but also got more in the CSS file

Z-index only works when an element has a position set (absolute, relative, or fixed)

Just set "jcarousel-control" DIV Top position and according to your need and make you DIV "RELATIVE" or ABSOLUTE according to your need.

Hope this will help you to solve your problem.
