If you were to try this on our university campus you'd be likely to hear 
many different pronunciations. Most people here actually shorten the 
name to just 'Typo' (English pronunciation), skipping the 3.. *shudders*

Personally I use the full English pronunciation but I sometimes catch 
myself pronouncing the '3' the Dutch way.. which is weird really, now 
that I think of it a bit more.
