LO conflict with MS Speech Recognition

I am running Win10. Through multiple repeated instances I have learned that LOCalc ( will not run at the same time MS speech recognition is in use. They each work fine by themselves but if both are open at the same time, neither responds–the hourglass shows over each of the two and the only way to get out of the dead loop is to close one or the other. Does anyone have a workaround for this? TIA–Ed
