    Maybe this will give you some ideas.
    Option Explicit
     
     Sub CountSomeWords()
    ' Example of how to use WordsOnSlide
    Dim oSl As Slide
    Dim lWordCount As Long
    For Each oSl In ActivePresentation.Slides
     lWordCount = lWordCount + WordsOnSlide(oSl)
    Next
    MsgBox lWordCount
    End Sub
     
     Function WordsOnSlide(oSl As Slide) As Long
    ' Gives APPROXIMATE word count of the words in
    ' text boxes and normal shapes on a slide
    ' Does not count shapes in groups, text in charts
    ' smart art, graphics, etc.
    Dim oSh As Shape
    Dim lCount As Long
    For Each oSh In oSl.Shapes
     If oSh.HasTextFrame Then
     If oSh.TextFrame.HasText Then
     lCount = lCount + oSh.TextFrame.TextRange.Words.Count
    End If
     End If
    Next
    WordsOnSlide = lCount
    End Function
