Hey Devon,

The scripting option only works on a Microsoft Windows machine with
Microsoft Word installed. It uses Visual Basic scripting to extract
the text instead of using the normal command line software. The end
result for you is that it's probably more compatible with newer
Microsoft Word documents and probably does a more faithful
reproduction of the document.
