    I suspect what the OP was talking about is this:

    You can see a sample in the gif at the bottom of the page.

    Unless there is another PCL Institute developing a different
    script for a different language, this appears to be an attempt
    to develop an alternative Bopomofo-like script that represents
    tones integrally in the letters, instead of using diacritics
    for the tones.

    At any rate, the claim that "not another [orthography] exists
    for the language" [= standard Mandarin, Putonghua], seems
    a little off to me.
