A voice is a single playable sound. (e.g. piano, organ, flute, violin, etc.)

A style is a set of defined parameters for a backing track. So if, for example, you wanted to play a bossa nova, you'd choose a bossa nova style, and the keyboard could then play an appropriate backing track... the chords would be based on what you played with your fingers, but the sounds, rhythms, and exact notes being played in the backing track are defined by the selected style.

The Style features are only found on Arranger keyboards and certain Digital Pianos.

A non arranger keyboard can have backing features but these are drum based rhythm patterns.

The Arranger features on Digital Pianos are often more limited compared to what is available in a dedicated Arranger keyboard.

The Voices and Styles are as Scott writes but many of the Sounds may not be single instruments but a group of them like Movie Strings and when grouped and other parameters are set and saved this is a Registration.

Yamaha, Korg and Casio are the principle Arranger Manufacturers with Casio only have products at the lower price end of the Arranger market.

Watch tutorials on the Yamaha SX700 and Korg Pa700 to see and hear the differences,
