Post an image of it? I bet somebody could recognize it. You might also get random wrong answers though…

Just use the CSS Overview of Chrome Devtools.

There are a few websites I've found before via Google that suggest fonts based on an image of the text, but they tend to be quite hit or miss. E.g. this one: myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/

Let's fund a social media app for writers where the only photo you can share must be in text form.

myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ it’s not always perfect but It’s helped me in a few pinches. If it’s online you can also try “inspecting” the page code

Expanding on this because it’s so useful! So long as you can highlight the letters in the text on the web page (ie. it’s not baked into an image), right click on the text and choose “Inspect Element”, then look for the text’s “font-family” in the Style/CSS section.
