This is my favorite safety tool and it's not close. Thanks for making it; much better and more responsive and nuanced than the x-card or veils/lines, without being complicated.
Script Change RPG Toolbox
A downloadable content toolbox
Script Change is a multi-function content, consent, and safety toolbox for collaborative creation and gameplay, useful for tabletop roleplaying games, board games, live action roleplaying games, and even collaborative video games to help guide group decision-making.
It contains a variety of tools including the core tools of rewind, fast forward, and pause, with supplementary tools like wrap meetings and frame-by-frame. These tools have verbal and optional visual components and work in many formats. You can even find the core tools on rollforyour.party, the multi-functional dice app by Shane Liebling.
Script Change is used by Big Bad Con and Breakout as options for safety tools on site for con events, and has been featured in games like Kids on Bikes and the Fate Horror Toolkit. It's an approachable toolbox that's Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

A huge, huge help. I try to use this system as much as I can when running games: both on and off my podcast. In a podcast setting it's particularly effective because we're already thinking the mindset of listening to audio: rewinding, pausing, resuming. And giving people that common language helps a ton in introducing a safety system.
I would recommend that you display it first, however. I've noticed players have a hard time taking control of a scene unless it's established it will happen without judgement.
Definitely use it.
(And to the designer: thank you so much for providing this to the community, and thank you for all the work you've done!)
