SpeechSynthesisVoice.voiceURI

The voiceURI read-only property of the SpeechSynthesisVoice interface returns the type of URI and location of the speech synthesis service for this voice.

Examples

for (let i = 0; i < voices.length ; i++) {
  const option = document.createElement('option');
  option.textContent = `${voices[i].name} (${voices[i].lang})`;

  if (voices[i].default) {
    option.textContent += ' — DEFAULT';
  }

  console.log(voices[i].voiceURI);
  // On Mac, this returns URNs, for example 'urn:moz-tts:osx:com.apple.speech.synthesis.voice.daniel'

  option.setAttribute('data-lang', voices[i].lang);
  option.setAttribute('data-name', voices[i].name);
