Orange characters in phrases?

Hi! I'm new to Duolingo; it's been about 2 weeks since I started and I see in the phrases part of each lesson that certain characters are orange, why is that? Do they change in sound depending on the characters beside them?

If I'm understanding your question correctly, orange characters usually designate new words/phases you are encountering for the first time in that unit. It's the same across all Duolingo languages.

They are new words that you may not have encountered before. If you click on them, it will give you a translation.
