Hi Kate, 

There are a few third-party effects that guess the key signature
but you cannot expect complete accuracy. 

If you have a good musical ear, select the note that sounds like 
the key note (tonic), then use this plug-in to give you the pitch 
of the note:

Just put the "pitch-detect.ny" file in your Audacity Plug-Ins folder 
then restart Audacity:
