The AtariVox can be used to play back voices during gameplay, as well as 5 channel music and saving of high-scores & game settings. You do give up the right joystick port to use it. A number of homebrew games support it.

The only game I'm aware of which uses extra hardware for voices is Juno First, which uses the AtariVox mentioned by SpiceWare. You can play Juno First without AtariVox, so it's not required, however, with the AtariVox you get extra voice-overs, such as the aliens taunting you, wave number, hyperspace notification, etc. I can't recall if AtariVox is necessary to continue from the last wave or not with Juno First, but having AtariVox and an extra pair of speakers plugged into it gives you the full experience with that game. There may be others that I'm not aware of, so someone correct me if I've missed them.
