A Ground Controlled Approach very much uses voice. The pilot is basically playing Simon Says with the aircraft while the controller is telling them which way to turn, and when to stop turning (left, right, higher, lower, etc.), in order to stay on the approach path.

This is primarily practiced at military airfields.
