JORDAN.-- /PRNewswire/ -- The region's largest provider of human capital information systems - MenaITech along with Mind Rockets Inc., a Jordan-based startup creating assistive technologies, developed a solution for deaf and hard of hearing employees.

Through this collaboration, MenaITech users can have access to a virtual sign-language interpreter that translates on-screen content to sign language.

The system translates text on MenaITech's website and MenaMEĀ® platform - the employee and manager self-service gateway, to sign language for users who are deaf or hard of hearing, which allows users to access HR services such as leave and vacation requests, attendance and departure records, salary-slips and can easily manage their HR functions from anywhere in the world. MenaITech is the first HCIS company in the region to provide this feature to its clients and the general public.

CEO of MenaITech, Dr. Bashar Hawamdeh commented, "We believe that technology should serve all people to help them accomplish more, whether in their professional or daily lives." He elaborated, "Working with Mind Rockets not only represents our drive to implement innovative technology, but also our ongoing commitment to make our systems more accessible to a greater number of people in addition to creating a more inclusive digital world in the region."

Mind Rockets system has been implemented on MenaITech's MenaMEĀ®, which allows users to access HR services such as leave and vacation requests, attendance and departure records, salary-slips and other core HR functions. With Mind Rockets services, employees who are deaf or hard of hearing can easily manage their HR functions from anywhere in the world.
