Is there any way to (or existing program which can) modify the keyboard symbols you get when holding down the option key?

I.e. I want to be able to modify these mappings:

  • @Buscar웃 to a different assortment of characters/symbols (e.g. greek characters, mathematical symbols, etc). This is the current mapping (thus I assume default). May 19, 2014 at 18:51

If you want to do this without using external application there is a good answer here

https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/130099/46541

DefaultKeyBinding.dict

Create ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict and enter

{ "~l" = (insertText:, "@"); }

This rebinds ⌥L to insert @

~ = ⌥

Quit and reopen applications for the change to take effect
