You can look under the graphics.h header file in the online
help in Turbo C.  In side the help, you should find information
on how to change text font, text color etc..
I think the function responsible for changing font is call
textattr...

Hope this helps

Here is an example taken directly from Turbo C Online Help

#include <graphics.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>

/* the names of the text styles supported */
char *fname[] = { "DEFAULT font",
                  "TRIPLEX font",
                  "SMALL font",
                  "SANS SERIF font",
                  "GOTHIC font"
                };

int main(void)
{
   /* request auto detection */
   int gdriver = DETECT, gmode, errorcode;
   int style, midx, midy;
   int size = 1;

   /* initialize graphics and local variables */
   initgraph(&gdriver, &gmode, "");

   /* read result of initialization */
   errorcode = graphresult();
   if (errorcode != grOk)  /* an error occurred */
   {
      printf("Graphics error: %s\n", grapherrormsg(errorcode));
      printf("Press any key to halt:");
      getch();
        exit(1); /* terminate with an error code */
   }

   midx = getmaxx() / 2;
   midy = getmaxy() / 2;

   settextjustify(CENTER_TEXT, CENTER_TEXT);

   /* loop through the available text styles */
   for (style=DEFAULT_FONT; style<=GOTHIC_FONT; style++)
   {
      cleardevice();
      if (style == TRIPLEX_FONT)
             size = 4;

      /* select the text style */
      settextstyle(style, HORIZ_DIR, size);

      /* output a message */
      outtextxy(midx, midy, fname[style]);
      getch();
   }

   /* clean up */
   closegraph();
   return 0;
}
