Please use the following code example to get the desired output. Hope this helps you.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "ZH-Bullets_test3.docx");
int listParaCount = 1;

for (Paragraph paragraph : (Iterable<Paragraph>)doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.PARAGRAPH, true))
    // Find if we have the paragraph list. In our document our list uses plain arabic numbers,
    // which start at three and ends at six
    if (paragraph.getListFormat().isListItem())

        // This is the text we get when actually getting when we output this node to text format
        // The list labels are not included in this text output. Trim any paragraph formatting characters
        String paragraphText = paragraph.toString(SaveFormat.TEXT).trim();
        System.out.println("Exported Text: " + paragraphText);

        ListLabel label = paragraph.getListLabel();
        // This gets the position of the paragraph in current level of the list. If we have a list with multiple level then this
        // will tell us what position it is on that particular level
        System.out.println("Numerical Id: " + label.getLabelValue());

        // Combine them together to include the list label with the text in the output
        System.out.println("List label combined with text: " + label.getLabelString() + " " + paragraphText);
