In PDF Document API, a PdfPageWord instance is returned by the PdfDocumentProcessor.NextWord and PdfDocumentProcessor.PrevWord methods.

The code sample below shows how to use the NextWord method to retrieve the list of document fonts.

static void Main(string[] args)
    HashSet<string> FontNames = new HashSet<string>();

    using (PdfDocumentProcessor processor = new PdfDocumentProcessor())

        //Check all words in the document
        PdfWord currentWord = processor.NextWord();
        while (currentWord != null)
            //Add the current font name to the list
            for (int i = 0; i < currentWord.Characters.Count; i++)
            currentWord = processor.NextWord();
    Console.WriteLine(string.Format("The loaded document contains the following fonts:\r\n{0}", 
    string.Join("\r\n", FontNames.ToArray())));
