for(i = 0; i < voices.length ; i++) {
  var 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'
