The reason I'm asking is that not all of the sentences in the Irish course have voice, and the ones with the voice I'm having difficulty finding a difference.

The sounds of lenited letters are described here, and the sounds of eclipsing letters replace the sounds of the letters being eclipsed (e.g. gcat has no c sound).
