    reCAPTCHA is intended to raise the probability that the entity on the other end of the line is a real person by making it very expensive (in developer costs, developer knowledge, and computational time) to create software that masquerades as a person. The only way for you to programatically get around reCAPTCHA is to reduce these costs by dropping the value of your developer time to near zero, do lots of research (get smart), and if you're hitting it often enough, to use powerful enough hardware that the computational cost is mitigated. In other words, you have to be rich, studious, and willing to work a long time for free. If you possess all of these qualities, I would think there are more worthwhile projects to donate your time and resources to.
