It wasn't really possible to give you a hint, as I had to do a bit of research myself. I've written up a blog post on the subject which you should be able to follow:

How to extract text from a Word docx file with Power Automate 

It's a bit rough around the edges as I don't have proper internet access at the moment, but should be good enough to extract the text for you. I expect the output is not as good as you would get from Encodian though (but I have no experience of it).

It can't be done without a third party connector.  Encodian is the only one I know of that handles Word docs.

Yes, I know of a way. I’m on holiday at the moment so can’t write it up for you. But will do so if I get some down time within the next few days.

Can you give me a hint till then, so I can start my work and try to find a solution @Paulie78

Thank you so much @Paulie78. You are awesome as always 😀. Now my real question is can I merge two docx files without third party connector I mean I thought if I can extract the text from two docx files then concatenate both files text and will make a new file with that. Is it possible or is there any other way to achieve it?
