Older generation folks will also often just use the good, old fashioned adverb, 'Absolutely!' 
Younger folks have taken in receny years to something of a resurrection of the Sixties 'Cool!' Whether this fully or partially captures the semantic of 'Hear! Hear! I'm not quite sure...

  Even "Hear, hear!", especially "Hyaa, hyaa ,hyaa!" - also seem pretty archaic, or at least formal in normal speech - maybe we should be looking for equivalents to 'Getchya!', 'For sure!', 'Massive!', 'Lol!', etc. depending on the circumstance!

  Or, as intoned in the House of Commons:  "Hyaa, hyaa, hyaa!"

  Many thanks for checking, Nicholas.

   

  In a late medieval context people would have been more likely to have said something like 'yea verily' or 'indeed forsooth'.   I imagine that equivalents of this type of rejoinder might have featured rather than the more contemporary expression of 'hear, hear'.
