Yeah, it is a bit strange to add an "-s" to newspaper to me. But I still added it anyway. NOTE:

I can't hear the "n" at the end of "lean"--is that a standard pronunciation thing I should be aware of? Silent "n's"?

Don't fully trust a software. Leen sounds as you expect each individual letter to sound (in a phonetic level).

I thought "newspaper" was "periodico" so put "diaries" instead of "newspapers"

You know there are multiple words that means the same thing. Newspaper = diario, periodico Diario= diary, newspaper

Most of the Spanish speakers I have met use periodicos. Diario (journal) is not something I hear as often. Which regional Spanish is it from?

I agree. Periodico is more common among speakers I hear, although I hear Mexican Spanish most often.
