I read a post saying it is necessary that we should be able to hear what we recite in salah or else the salah will not count. Is this true?

Yes. It is not permissible to recite completely silently without the movement of the tongue and lips.
As a woman, no one else should hear your voice but you should hear your own voice while moving your lips.
Only Allah knows best
