Compatible, yes. Recomended, no...
Look at the DISPLAY/ACCEPT and the SPECIAL-NAMES paragraph in the COBOL manual.

Generally, the console is just too busy to observe anything and expection ops to respond is a real production bottleneck.
Display without the upon will put the message to standard sysout and accept without the from will get the data from standard sysin.

display upon console and accept from console

are issues that should have been analyzed when planning the conversion
and clear directives should have been given on how to convert these statements ...

...use the parm approach,
...define a standardized ddname from where to read the string being currently accepted from the console
