Word Document Hyperlink Checker
I have thousands of word documents to check for broken links. Going through these word documents manually is tedious and error prone.
I have tried AbleBits.com's free Document Hyperlink Checker, but it is not able to detect broken links, although it claims it does.

Batch convert all the documets into HTML file format (Save As...) and then subject them to one of the many Web Link Validator tools.
Thanks for the suggestion.
I tried that and tried to find the most popular link validator tool which I think is, LinkChecker 0.6.6
by Kevin Freitas. I found this difficult to use because while it highlighted broken links, it's very difficult to do for the documents that I was checking. The documents contained about 5000-10000 words and probably only 10 links. So scrolling every line for any highlighted links can take a very long time.
Any other suggestions?
