It would defeat the purpose of having captcha, if a script could capture it. – Suchit Parikh Oct 18 '13 at 19:40

If you want pass "classical capture" like this, then my answer "There is no way".

For testing: you should test build without capture verification (Devs can create special build)

For hacking by webdriver (f.e. You want to create google accounts by webdriver automatically) you should to explore "capture hacking"
