I want to run Javascript in the beam emulator.

At the moment I am working with VoiceXML which incorporates ECMAScript.
Although they call a VoiceXML interpreter a "voice browser" if you
consider where it is typically used in the network it is a server side
application.

Yes, there are a couple bindings to external engines.  Erlyjs was 
taking the approach I would prefer, interpreting the ECMAscript on
the beam machine.
