I saw a program on Windows that helped the user learn keyboard shortcuts in various applications by reminding there is a shortcut every time he used a mouse to particular task.

Is there some similar software available for Mac OS X?

There is indeed some software which will help you remind shortcuts.
You will find a list of official shorcuts here at apple.com.

To learn shortcuts, I find Eve the most appealing. Everytime you are using your mouse to execute a command or action, Eve will remind you of the shortcut which you can use for the next time. Eve supports Mavericks, Lion and Mountain Lion.

Their are two more apps which are approaching an another attempt: CheatSheet and KeyCue.
They are giving you an instant overview of all shortcuts. Hold the cmd key for a couple of seconds, and a window will pop up with a cheat sheet. While CheatSheet is free, KeyCue costs $19.99

seconding Eve, it works well. CheatSheet is also a solid recommendation. –  nthonygreen Feb 17 '14 at 12:35
I would recommend CheatSheet as well. –  Joe Casadonte Feb 17 '14 at 16:32
