Soft Voice Disorder A soft or quiet voice can obviously inhibit communication. If someone can’t hear what you’re saying, they can’t give you a proper response. Instead of asking you to repeat yourself, sometimes they’ll just pretend they’ve heard you and end the conversation.

Instead, they’ll move on to someone they have an easier time understanding. If you want to speak in a group conversation, especially a lively one, it’s a lot harder to draw attention to yourself if you are soft spoken.
