I thought came to me just recently, and I was wondering if you guys think Akira Toriyama knows who the English voices actors are for Dragon Ball Z??

You know the people like Sean Schemmel, Chris Sabot,etc.

I doubt he cares about who plays his characters in English.

Given that between Kid Goku and Adult Goku English Goku has like 14? English voice actors why even bother?

No way of knowing for sure as I don't believe he's ever mentioned them in interviews, but its probably unlikely given he doesn't know English fluently and thusly wouldn't have much interest in keeping up with a dub of it.

For what its worth he did meet Chris Sabat once so if he knows any of the cast he'd probably be the most likely.
