Same for iOS8 GM & XCode 6.1b2 iOS SDK (same 8GM?) - app compiles fine, but speech did not work on simulator (with message: "Speech initialization error: 2147483665"). Same code did work properly on real device - iPhone 4s, iPhone 5s was ok.

This issue is resolved on the device using iOS beta 4.

On the simulator I get the following error "Speech initialization error: 2147483665"
