Unfortunately, only a correct and accurate diagnosis would be helpful in this situation. Generally a weak voice is from the vocal cords not coming together and allowing air to leak out so the volume is lower. She would need to find someone who could examine her vocal cords, sort out if this is the case and then a treatment could be discussed.
