The Alt key does work, you probably have your keyboard misconfigured.

Not Alt itself, some combinations that begin with Alt.  Like Alt-TAB,
for example.  There are very few such combinations, and Emacs avoids
binding important functions to them.  So I think explaining that in
the tutorial would not be TRT, as the issue is quite obscure.
