Unlike the binary "excel" format (at least for early versions), "OpenDocument" is a well documented file format (a zip file containing various XML files; processible by standard XML tools). Thus, you may get at the content via "zipfile" and Python's "xml" tools. It might be possible to create an "xlrd" replacement based on "zipfile" and the "xml" package -- but, of course, one would need to study the (complex) description for the involved XML files. In the "Plone" world, there are text extractors/html converters for "OpenDocument" which go this route. I do not know how well they work. -- https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list
