It is also possible to add text as axis labels. You do this by:
1. Select the chart
2. You should now see a Design menu under Chart Tools. Click it, then choose Add Chart Element
3. Select Axis Titles...Primary Vertical in the resulting dialog. Change the resulting text to suit.

To add text to a data point:
1. Slowly, click the data point on the chart twice to select just it
2. Rightclick the data point, then choose Add Data Label...Add Data Label from the resulting popup
3. The data label will initially contain the value of the datum, but you can select that text and add your own. You can also drag the data label to one side to avoid hiding the point.
