Does the Document Intelligence Custom Classification Model accepts Word and Excel documents as input files to make predictions or just PDF files?

The documentation states "... You can now train classifiers to recognize document types in various formats including ...Word, PowerPoint, and Excel...".

Does anyone know if Custom Classification Model supports Word and Excel documents as imput files to classificate or just for the model trainning? I mean, after trainning the model, can I submit Word and Excel documents to be classificated by the model?
