Short for voice encoder. A device that encodes and decodes the sound of human voice into/from digital format for transmission.

Different vocoder types may produce digital data of different bitrates (amount of data per second). Higher bitrates may indicate better voice quality, although more efficient vocoders can achieve high voice quality with lower bitrates.
