As far as i can see, this transcription doesn't necessarily add anything to Yoruba that the existing orthographies don't cover.

Are you Yoruba?

I have good news for you, the Yoruba language has just changed. Welcome to
Yoruba language New Version.
* Once upon a time, the Yoruba language was written with various
accents called ami oke - ?´ , ami isale - ?` , and faegun - e.
* Once upon a time we use to have ?, ?, in Yoruba texts.
* Once upon a time we use some unconventional alphabets called gb, and
sh in Yoruba language.

Good News
The good news is that all those are now gone with the wind.There is a new
version of Yoruba Orthography. There is a new way to write that beautiful
language called Yoruba. This new version is called Yorubax Transcript..

Introducing Yorubax Transcript

The new and easier way to write the Yoruba Language. Transcript does not use
accents or the unconventional alphabets. Transcript converts these accents
into easy to write alphabetical codes through a method called differentiation.
The unconventional alphabets are also replaced with conventional ones
through a method called Regeneration.
The result of this ten year research program - a new version of Yoruba,
Yoruba without accents.
A look at the Transcript version of Akinwumi Isola's poem - AFAIMO, in
contradistinction to the old Yoruba version on the right column will give you a
first taste of how Transcript has transformed the topographic landscape of
Yoruba literature. . .
