If a deaf person is on a plane when a yawning fit breaks out, do they think everyone is yelling?

Would they be panicked? Should we as a society be more understanding of such a possibly? Is there some sort of sign we could come up with to signal we are yawning To those that may not be able to hear?

I am not deaf myself and do not know any deaf people personally to ask about this. Hopefully someone here can provide some insight into the situation.

Thanks.

Yes, because deaf people are notoriously stupid. They would definitely not use social cues to realize that nobody is panicking in other ways. Some yawning people would probably be covering their mouths, but they wouldn't care. "Mouths open, must be screaming" they'd think.

If anything, deaf people would know sooner than others that they are just yawning.
