There are different types of capcha available now days. Automating a strong capcha is almost impossible and that’s why they have put capcha in place to avoid robots. Most of the strong capcha involves the use of images & distorted text.

Bheem is right that some capchas are able to automate, as there are simple capcha also available like the one we have on It is possible to automate that but it will require a good amount of code to handle each and every possible combination like 2 * 2 or 11 + twenty.  

Ankit is also right that it is not advisable to automate capcha and if you have any application to test with capcha, then it is advisable to instruct the developers to bypass the capcha integration on test environment.
