Quiet voice: You might have weakness of vocal folds. This is seen in older patients. You may weak lungs therefore lack of air powering your voice. You could have a polyp or other lesion interfering with function. Finally, you may just be made this way. You need to be checked by ENT to examine vocal folds.
