I don't think tat is possible. You have to change the font using the online version.
Truth is still truth, even if you don't believe in it.

The article link posted by Hamid Rezajackob shows how to add fonts to your Android device, but not necessarily to Word for Android.

I have Word installed in my Android tablet and it allows me to choose from a list of several different fonts, but they are completely different from the five or six fonts that Android, in the same device, allows me to choose from in order to personalize it. It is as if they were two separate and different sets of fonts to choose from: one to use with my Word documents and other to personalize the OS.

I have a ttf font file in my computer that allows me to write musical notes (including the pentagram lines) in a Word document, and I would like to install that font to use it in Word from my Android tablet, not to use it to personalize my Android.

So the question still is, how do I install a ttf font file to use it in Word from my Android device. I'm aware it may not be possible to use the same ttf file that I use in my computer, in which case I would need to get another font file that is compatible with Android, but the main problem now is how to install a font and make Word for Android recognize it.

Any solutions?

I think I have found a way to add a font to Word for Android.  Here is how I did it:

[1]  On my Windows PC, I opened MS Word, and in a new document, I typed a little bit of text, and selected the "Wide Latin" font.  For this example, I typed the text "This is the Wide Latin font".  For this example, I used Word 2013, running on Windows 7, and my font was Wide Latin (not available on Word for Android).

[2]  In Word 2013, I embed the font in the file, via "File -> Options -> Save", and checked the box for "Embed fonts in this file".  I saved the file as "Wide Latin Font 2.docx".

[3]  I save the Word document to OneDrive.

[4]  On my Android tablet (I have a Galaxy Tab4), I opened the Word document via OneDrive, into Word for Android.

[5]  The font "Wide Latin" now shows up on my Android tablet both for "Wide Latin Font 2.docx" AND for NEW Word documents.  And my Android tablet displays the Wide Latin font (both on the ribbon, and as I type), as shown below:

I hope that the above might be of help.  However, I only tried this one time, but it seemed to work for me - perhaps some other people might try this on their equipment/software, to see if they get the same result that I did.  I suppose it is possible that I am missing something - I just tried the above as an experiment, and I was actually kind of surprised at the result that I got (especially the part where the Wide Latin font is available for NEW documents).

6-19-2017: It is now about 10 months since I made the above post, and the Wide Latin font is STILL available for new documents with my Android Tablet.  I just wanted to mention this, to let everyone know, that apparently, once the above mentioned steps # 1-4 are done, the new Wide Latin font will PERMANANTLY be in Word, on an Android tablet (at least that was my experience).

Did all of the above, and was looking very hopeful, Word for Android recognised my new font was imbedded, however it was an unsupported font 'in this version of word'... Bummer.

I am looking to install a Zhu Yin Fu Hao font. So as to translate Chinese characters into phonetic symbols.

The HanWangKai font opens just fine and translates well on the Desktop version of Word.

Any other bright ideas?

I get everything but step 5. And document I've saved both normally (18 KB), and with the font embedded (4.7 MB). I've tried it on my Galaxy Tab S3 and on my Galaxy Note8.
