One quickie that comes to mind is to use Acrobat Distiller to create PDF
files from the .ps documents, then open in Acrobat Reader or Exchange,
select the text or graphics in the PDF, copy and paste.

Perhaps others can point to tools that extract text and graphics from .ps
files. You won't retain any markup tags that might have been in the
original documents, so you'll still have hand-tagging work in Frame.
