This not necessarily true. If the GUI designer is designing an app
aiding in translating movies then he can deduct from the target user
group that such a dialog box should not be shown. The translator
using the app must hear see/hear all words.

GUI designers always design for a well specified target group. With a
well defined user group there is rarely a need to guess what the user of an
app will want, the GUI designer knows what the users will want.

But there are always exceptions and corner cases of course...
