How can I add text on a GIF
As the title says, I wanna add text on a GIF. As for the position, I want to both add text on the GIF itself, and also on top of the GIF (in a white background). But I'm confused as to how to do it. Any help will be appreciated.
There are a few plugins that will add text or a graphic to an animation. Ofnuts has one here:

Down near the bottom of the list: dated 2012-07-09

Unzip, put in your Gimp profile folder: C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins
Find it bottom of the Image menu

A couple of things that you will need to do to your animation, in preparation.

1. If it is optimised Filters -> Animation -> Unoptimise
2. Change the colour mode to RGB Image -> Mode -> RGB

For text on top of the animation. You can increase the canvas size Image -> Canvas Size Then make a new image same size as the animation and put that under each layer with the plugin (in sprite mode)

For text on the animation, same procedure but transparent image with text and use the plugin in title mode.

A quick video demo of that. Apologies for the audio, got a bit out of sync towards the end. duration 3 and a half minutes.
