Does a CI-V cable send/receive audio?


I have just acquired an ICOM IC-706MKII which I have connected to my Ubuntu desktop using a Prolific CI-V cable and WSJT-X 1.7.

Rig control seems fine regarding changing frequencies. I assumed (which is always dangerous) the CI-V cable would be the only
connection I need between my radio and computer to rx/tx. I'm now confused as to where the computer's audio fits into the equation.
Should I be able to send/receive audio on the CI-V cable or do I need more hardware to do this?

Many thanks,
