Microsoft said Thursday it has closed its deal to buy voice recognition specialist Tellme Networks.
Tellme CEO Mike McCue remains at Microsoft as head of that unit, working with Zig Serafin, who is the general manager of Microsoft's Unified Communications Group. The company, which reports into Jeff Raikes' business software unit, is remaining in its Mountain View, Calif., headquarters. Mountain View is also home to Microsoft's existing Silicon Valley offices.
Microsoft announced its plans to buy Tellme back in March, following months of negotiations and rumors and reports that a deal was near.
