You could try saving the document, in MSWord, as "Plain text." Choose a
NEW name for the file. MSWord may ask you to pick an encoding. You could
lose any non-Latin1 characters (in fact, you could end up with some weird
characters anyway), but let's hope you get most of the text cleanly.
These may not be Word files, but are perhaps older WordPerfect, XYWrite, or
Wang files which Word is managing to open.
As a last resort -- print out and OCR.
