Curve modifier

If you don't mind the letters being deformed, then you can use a curve modifier:

  1. Add a path (ShiftA> Curve > Path) and change the tilt of the last control vertex to 90°

  2. Add a curve modifier to the text and select the path as the object.

    enter image description here

  3. Animate the path object sliding past.
