well, you cannot avoid this by reading in a raw fashion. You will have to read it through automation.

Your application or website rely on your database to deliver information about products and services to your customers. You can’t afford to have your database lose performance, lose availability or become unresponsive – even for just a few minutes.

automation will allow to read some files by talking with an application that support OLE automation. In this case, you can make Word to read the files (doc, txt, html), and the ask it to give you all the text.
