I've had a bad cold and cough and now my voice is just a croak. Is there any way I can get it audible before tomorrow lunchtime

If you think its laryngitis not just sore throat I think only time really helps. (Not medically qualified). Alternate paracetamol/ ibuprofen to give your body best rest and stay hydrated i.e. Drink loads. Icelollies may make you feel a little better and keep hydrated if sore throat is making swallowing difficult.

I'm a bit of a fan of long soak in a warm bath and early night with honey and lemon plus paracetamol as being best chance to recover.

Good luck.

Last interview I went to I had a painful ear infection and very loud tinnitus (which still hasn't gone away), I had to apologise and ask them to repeat questions/speak up constantly blush. Amazingly still got the job.

I find sooking throat sweets keeps the coughing at bay, just explain if its the only thing that helps and apologise for sooking in an interview.

Hope you feel better soon!

I think it's laryngitis. I'm on the herbal tea and honey and I'm having caffeine withdrawal. considering looking up sign language

I too had an interview with very little voice and got the job ... Think the fact I still made the effort went a long way.
Depending on the type of job could you type / write some achievements you want to mention etc
