    You have to differentiate between a low volume and slurring. If it is a low volume then this is known as dysphonia and may be related to a problem in the larynx (voice box) or respiratory tract.

    You can read more about it in this article :

    If you are slurring, then it may be related to your articulation (dysarthria) and could be due to a problem with the muscles of your mouth, tongue or even neurological disorders.

    You should see an ENT specialist (otolaryngologist) who will conduct further tests and possibly refer you to a speech and language therapist, depending on the cause.
