The software is extremely simple and you can either copy the text that you need from the output or export all the extracted text as TXT file.

There are some other document text extractors you can use but this one is by Nirsoft. And Nirsoft tools are highly stable and lightweight that is why I am writing its review here. The software is very simple and you just use it on any document from which you want to extract some text. However, for now it can only process one file at a time. You cannot use it to bulk extract text from documents. Also, this is a pre-released software so it may have some bugs but in stable version all the functionality will be smooth.
