I know that some Ryuha have silent kiai and that in some iai styles silent kiai is encouraged when there is no audible kiai.
I trained in a University dojo in Japan for a number of years, but we had to start practicing "otonasu kiai" (silent kiai) because some professors were complaining that when we had the windows open, our kiai disrupted their classes.
