If you using the text tool to add new text on a text layer, or to edit an existing text layer in a document, then you can choose sharp/smooth etc from the options bar: If you have just opened a  document with text in it that is already rasterised then no, aside from selecting the area and blurring the text.

What zoom level. What your screenshot appears to show is that Photo Viewer is softening the edges more when zoomed in more than 100% and Photoshop is just showing the anti-aliasing that will be applied at 100% zoom and not adding additional softening. However, the real test is to view at 100% where 1 image pixel maps to 1 screen pixel.
