As far as I know, all of the C++ compilers can be used with a text
interface, and do not depend on a graphical front-end. Therefore, you
should be able to access the compilers, however, if it is graphical UI
code you have to develop, it may not be very easy to accomplish. If, on
the other hand, you are developing the underlying data structures and
algorithms, you can still do this. If your company has well-defined UI
objects and standards, and you can just wrap these over your programs,
then you should also be able to develop even x apps using a text-based
interface. As far as text based interfaces are concerned, you
undoubtedly know that you can accomplish this with a speech-equiped
terminal, but a more powerful and elegant, platform-resident solution is
to use Emacspeak. T. V. Raman, the developer of Emacspeak, monitors this
list and hopefully will jump in here with an answer for you, but
Emacspeak has some very definate advantages for speech users who are
working with C source code.

Good luck, and congrats on getting the job!
