Hi Jason
 Covox made a number of boards to digitize sound. These were
to go with there software that did voice recognition.
The wires you are looking at were most likely microphone
and earphone wires.
 I don't know if the company is still in existence but
I think they were in Los Gatos, Ca. A quick check with
their chamber of commerce should turn up something.
 I have a board someplace that would take some 10
or so words and convert them to commands that were
jammed in the keyboard input. The A/D was quite cheap
and most sound boards had better quality.
