Memorize By Heart is an iOS app that attempts to help. With the $.99 app you copy and paste text into the app and then test your ability to remember that text by having the app selectively remove letters or words from the mix, effectively having you fill in blanks.

For instance, it might let you know you’re only 50% of the way to having a speech memorized or it will confirm you’ve got it down and are ready to go.

And if you’re looking for other solutions, using this font also might help.
