I want to put a text over a photo on a word doc without the white box. Is

If the "white box" you refer to is a textbox then all you need to do
is select and right click the textbox, choos "Format textbox", Colors
and Lines>Fill>Color>No fill.

And No Line as well, since text boxes by default have a 0.75-point outline.

I thought that a default textbox was actually a white borderless boxes
packed in a clear box defined using a 0.75 point outline Wink

Not really. What you seem to be describing is the effect of the text box
margins. If you have text boundaries displayed, you'll see a dotted line
defining the text area inside the text. If you reduce the inner margins to
zero, the dotted line will be coincident with the outline. A text box is an
AutoShape and, as such, is really no different from a rectangle on which you
have used "Add Text."

In any event, there is an outline that will have to be removed if you want
text to float, unencumbered, over a graphic.
