A question to ask them -- did they use text files and simply use Flash to
inhale the content?
Whenever I use Flash with a lot of text I write some ActionScript to access
a text file and import the data. If changes, edits, etc. need to be made, I
simply replace the text file.

Any idea if that's what was developed?

If you have the original .fla files you should be able to figure it out. Or
simply cut and paste the text from the .fla into a Word document.
