Latin term or phrase: vogem-meam-a ovime-tangit
These are the words on an ornate brass hanging bell that we purchased. We do not know what language it is and would like to know and also what this means. Thank you so much

Vocem meam audit qui me tangit: Whoever touches me hears my voice.


Explanation:
Original Latin inscription: Vocem meam audit qui me tangit.

It means: Whoever touches me hears my voice.

This is an inscription commonly found in bells (!). Sometimes a few words are abbreviated, as in your case. And often over time parts of the inscription are worn away.
