Nearly all that's said about text here is spot on. There's a few caveats though.

1) "But let's hit the random button on wikipedia and pick a sentence, see if you can draw a picture to convey it". Yes that'd most often be hard or near impossible. But the opposite would also be true. Ask five people to write a description of a random picture, and you'd nearly always get five different descriptions.

2) Pictures can be understood in almost the blink of an eye in most cases, whereas text of more than a few words will always take a few seconds or more to read.

3) Animations or movies can explain some things way better and sometimes faster than text can.
