The speaker isn't what picks up your voice... the microphone does (the right one, looking at it from the front). Usually if no one can hear you at all, it's a problem with the headphone sensor (the one that let's the phone know if headphones are plugged in, killing the built-in mic and speaker).

That might not be it in your case, but it's a common occurrence.
