I required to test captcha feature. Is there any standards to test this
feature? please suggest me any materials & tools.

Typically CAPTCHAs are implemented mostly as an afterthought.  One of
the things that I've seen is simply submitting the form by removing
the CAPTCHA parameters and the "captcha required flag" altogether and
the forms still seem to work.  It's a very basic test but seems to
work a lot.

Also, sometimes replay might work.  So as long as you have one right
CAPTCHA you can replay the form multiple times with that same CAPTCHA
and things do work.

Hope it helps!
