It's Official...this riddle is INSANE

Here's the riddle. I have been trying to solve it for about four months now, and I still can't get it.

There's a blind man, a deaf man, and a mute man. They all have oranges. The deaf man steals an orange from the blind man. How will the mute be able to tell the blind that his orange was stolen?

Hints:

1.) It's some form of verbal communication.
2.) It's not Morse code or sign language.
3.) Apparently, it's something you do everyday.
4.) Think very simply.

I am trying to figure this out still so can any of you wise scholars help?

I shouldn't have read this thread, now I will be trying to figure this out all day!

I know this isn't the right answer but if I were the Mute I would wait till the deaf is asleep then go and get the orange from him and give it back to the blind man.

Apparently it took the guy who gave it to me four years to figure it out. That worries me...

My friend said it was supposed to be verbal communication, though.

Yeah it's aggravating my entire church since everybody knows the riddle but no one can solve it. Apparently, the prinicipal of my friend's school threatened to not give him his diploma if he didn't give him the answer.

No it's not Braille either. I remember him telling me that. This is so aggravating.

Braille is not verbal communication.

This has been aggravating me too! Hopefully someone will be able to figure it out soon!

I wonder if the blind man can read lips via putting his hand on the mutes mouth?

Maybe the mute could burp "deaf man stole oranges"?

Something you do everyday ... well us Interferers are on the computer everyday.

I'll say text-to-speech function on a computer?
