I have my own conversion mode which I've been running for the past 9
years. The image rendering of files is of no use to me - I need the
files converted into plain text. Unfortunately, the two are treading on
each others toes. I know that I would probably be able to do something
with doc-view mode to give me what I want, but the mode I've written
also handles doc, docx, xls and ppt, plus integrates with browse-url so
that if I try to view-file on any of these types, it gives me a text
rendering that I can use.  It is also a lot faster than doc-view.

I need it in text because I use emacspeak and it won't work with images.

Tim
