In brief: Possibly
A raspy voice is the result of some disease of the larynx or inflammation of the vocal folds (cords).
Pharyngitis means an inflammation of the back of the throat. Although they can occur together as a result of a viral infection, the two problems are usually unrelated. Raspy voice can be due to voice abuse or a growth on the vocal folds. Pharyngitis may be due to infection or reflux of acid.
