ReCAPTCHA works just fine without JavaScript---I answer a number of
CloudFlare CAPTCHAs a day, which uses ReCAPTCHA, all with JS
disabled.  It serves a static image in an iframe and you have to
copy/paste a code into a textarea outside of the iframe.

With that said, I _have_ seen websites implement it in such a way that
it does _not_ work with JS disabled (e.g. for registration forms).  I
wouldn't know what the difference is; I simply don't use those websites.
