The phrase 'Vox audita perit littera scripta' is incomplete. It needs to end with the verb 'manet'. The English meaning of the complete Latin sentence 'Vox audita perit littera scripta manet' is the following: 'The voice once heard perishes, [but] the letter once written remains'. The sentence is one of the surviving proverbs from the ancient Romans. Some ancient Roman proverbs are recyclings into Latin of earlier, older proverbs in ancient, classical Greek. And such may be the case here, for a Greek version exists.

Who said vox audita perit littera scripta manet?

[A heard voice perishes, the written letter survives]. This is a legal tag, asserting the reliability of written evidence as opposed to the unreliability of hearsay. I do not know of any original Latin source for it. I rather doubt it has one. (It doesn't sound like real Latin).

Who said 'Littera scripta manet'?

The English equivalent of the Latin sentence 'Littera scripta manet' is the following: 'The letter once written remains'. The sentence is part of a proverb from the ancient, classical Latin language. The first part of the proverb is as follows: 'Vox audita perit', which means 'The voice once heard perishes'. Some Latin proverbs preserve sayings from the earlier, ancient, classical Greek. Such may be the case here, because a version exists from the Greek also.
