    Asslamo Allaikum,

    1) If you are praying alone then you should recite silently

    2) You would also say your Takbeers (Allahu Akbar) silently

    If someone touches your shoulder and asks for you to become an Imam in the middle of your prayer then

    3) You start reciting loudly

    4) You start saying your Takbeers loudly

    In prayers like fajr, maghrib and isha it is sunnah to recite loudly when you're praying alone.
    as for jama'ah see post just below

    These are the rulings from Beheshti Zewar regarding praying loudly or softly.

    "In order to differentiate between loud and soft, the jurists have written that "loud" will mean that someone else can hear the recitation, and "soft" will mean that only the person reciting can hear his own voice.

    "It is wajib for the imam to make qirat in a loud voice in the following salaats: both the rakaats of Fajr, the first two rakaatrs of Maghrib and Esha irrespective of whether it is a qada or an adaa [prayer in proper time] salaat, Juma'ah, Eid, Taraweeh, and the Witr in Ramadaan.

    The munfarid [one praying alone] has the choice of reciting the two rakaats of Fajr and the first two rakaats of Maghrib and Esha, in a loud or soft voice.

    It is wajib on the imam and the munfarid to mmake the qira'at softly in all the rakaats of Zuhr and Asr, and the latter rakaats of Maghrib and Esha.

    If a munfarid [person praying alone] is making qada salaat of Fajr, Maghrib, and Esha during the day, it will also be wajib to make qira'at softly in them. But if he makes the qada of them at night, he has a choice."

    The conclusion from all this in my own words is this:

    1. If it is day time it is wajib to recite silently for both the imam leading the jama'at as well as for the person praying alone irrespective of whether he is praying qada or salaat in its proper time. (I don't know what will happen if someone prays qada of loud salaat with jama'at during the day).

    2. If it is night time then there are two people:

    a) Imam: The raka'ats the imam generally recites loudly and softly, it is wajib for the imam to recite those respective raka'ats loudly and softly.

    b) Person praying alone - There are two possibilities
    i) The raka'ats the imam prays loudly - The person praying alone has a choice of praying it softly or loudly. [This is the only time the person praying alone has a choice to be different than the imam].
    ii) The raka'ats the imam prays softly - It is wajib for the person praying alone to recite these raka'ats softly as well.

    Nafl salaat prayed during the day should be recited softly and the ones at night there is a choice and the person can recite softly or loudly.

    Brother bugmenot - as you can see reciting loudly in Fajr, Maghrib and Esha in jama'at in the first two raka'ats is wajib and not sunnah.

    Another important thing is that at all times one should pray/recite with voice. Sometimes the voice will be soft and sometimes it will be loud. And the definitions for loud and soft has already been mentioned. Merely thinking the words in the mind is not enough.

    sorry I meant when praying alone, it is sunnah to recite loudly in "loud" prayers.
    Anyways what is wajib is from the sunnah too
