The GUI does offer the functionality. There is a spinner called "synchronization of subtitles" that allows you to
specify the time. This site explains how to use it


However, it seems unclear to me at the first glance whether I should be entering a positive or a negative value.
It doesn't take long to figure out, but making this more obvious might improve user-friendliness.

I was thinking a radio button with two options

1) Subtitles ahead
2) Video ahead

Then you can only use positive values in the spinner to define the absolute value of the timing difference.

Hope that clears it.
