If the documents are sufficiently stereotyped you may be able to 
recognize the context in the Postscript that surrounds the numbers.
The numbers are likely to have extraneous characters embedded, as
Microsoft tends to insist on doing fine positioning of characters,
rather than modifying the average spacing.

You could also use the the postscript to plain text utility from
ghostscript, although it can be confused by the same microspacing.
