Attached is an imperfect script to do this. The imperfections are:
1. it relies on the frames' names beginning with "Text" to recognize them.
2. If text frames are linked you will get duplicate output -- everything 
is there, but perhaps multiple times.

It will also give the source of each image frame's image.

I did this as an exercise so I didn't bother to keep working on it. If 
you added a test of a frame's contents you could fix problem number 1.
