Nortel is to close a research and development facility near Montreal that develops speech and voice recognition services, in a move that will affect around 280 staff.
The company said it intends to move about 150 of the affected employees to another plant in Quebec, while the remainder will be relocated to other jobs or laid off.
Nortel plans to axe its voice activated directory product, but will continue the development of other speech and voice recognition projects.
