Additional information

This is not implemented and we don’t support this yet. Kindly Open a feature request.

It’s likely that you are more broadly interested in this

Why is it considered a feature request and not a bug? This makes the word count for me unusable. It’s not like the base64 encoded image resembles any kind of actual text.

Because it’s not something that is implemented but does not work because of a bug.

Skipping html, stripping some markdown markers, etc, etc is not implemented.
