Analyzing Visual Texts and Documents Remember: Like with written texts, every part of a visual text is a conscious choice. The words • How much written text is present? To what effect? • What do the words say? Do they agree with the image or contradict it in some way? • What kind of diction, tone, language is present in the written text? • What do the words imply?
