On modern keyboards the Right Hand Alt key is marked Alt Gr which stands for Alt Graphics. It's function is different to the Left Hand Alt and what it does depends on the Keyboard layout and the operating system.

On my UK keyboard with Windows 8.1 the Alt Gr key with these keys produces -
a > á
e > é
i > í
o > ó
u > ú
4 > €
¬ > ¦

This gives these results on all applications including Notepad, MS Office, LO. The same results are produced by using Control + Left Hand Alt as Alt Gr produces the same Keycode as Control + Left Hand Alt.
