English and Spanish Voiceovers Made Simple. Young Amy was rarely without a tape recorder in hand. She was fascinated by recorded sound and quickly learned how to manipulate her voice to sound like other people. Amy would often write plays, recording all the character voices herself. By 11 she was recording songs off the Spanish radio station, playing them back to transcribe and look up words she didn’t know. By 15 her family saw her passion to learn the language and allowed her to study abroad in Alicante, Spain. She returned fluent & determined to learn more. As a teenager, Amy would travel to the Caribbean on 3 mission trips, working with orphans and steeping herself in Spanish.
She moved to Puerto Rico in 1993 where she began work as a radio news anchor. Her real love was recording spots, however. The English and Spanish words mingled in those commercials and Amy loved drifting between the 2 languages seamlessly. Unbeknownst to her, Amy was at the vanguard of what is today’s popular Spanglish genre. Currently, Spanglish commercials that use a hybrid of Spanish and English have become an integral part of Amy’s voiceover work and are becoming an increasing popular tool to reach the US Hispanic market.
True Neutral Spanish
What’s different about Amy’s Spanish? Since Amy has immersed herself in the US Latino melting pot, her Spanish is nondescript of any particular country. When speaking, she plucks words that are the most common denominator from the Spanish-speaking world. The result? More ears understand your message. The US Hispanic population encompasses 20+ countries with many diverse dialects. Amy’s extensive travel throughout Central America and the Caribbean has allowed her to know what words to say, and just as important, what words not to say in order to not offend certain people within the Latin American community. Amy simply calls her accent “US Spanish.” Google may have different definitions of US Spanish, but for Amy it means concise, clear neutral Spanish that is understood by the majority of Spanish-speakers living in the United States. Much like national newscasters on television, there is usually no evidence of regional accents. Their message reaches the majority of viewers easily and precisely.
Since 2006, Amy has recorded voiceovers for television, radio, satellite radio, radio imaging, web pre-roll, apps, elearning courses, medical narrations, pharmaceutical narrations, explainer videos, corporate narrations, TV affiliate, promo, political, PSA’s, on hold messaging, IVR and AI. Amy enjoys recording for retail as well as the healthcare Industry, pharma, government and municipal entities, banking, financial and wealth management institutions. Amy’s voice is reassuring, trustworthy and impactful.
When not in her booth, Amy enjoys traveling, listening to Salsa music and going to the gym. Amy is a great cook, always putting new twists on her family’s favorite Dominican, Puerto Rican and Cuban delicacies such as rice and beans, plantains and roast pork. When inside the booth, Amy is professional, versatile and directable.

I am an aspiring filmmaker and I used Amy Taylor’s voice in a couple of animated trailers for a horror film I plan to make. Amy is so versatile she read for ALL of the female characters (35 year-old American, 40 year-old Filipina, 22 year-old American, 22 year-old Latina and a 10 year-old girl) and no one who sees the finished product believes all the voices belong to one person! Her readings gave me goose bumps!
