Converting picture into text

I'm trying to figure out how to use one of the features of the Note 4 that I've read about during the release. Apparently there is a way in which you can take a picture of something that contains text and the Note 4 will convert it into editable text. I assume it can be saved as a text document. How does this work? Would love to know!

Also, sorry to be such a newbie, but when I am using the stylus, is there any gesture/shortcut to emulate pressing the home button without actually needing to take my hand off the stylus to press it? The capacitive buttons work with the stylus, the home button doesn't, sort of a nitpick but would be much nicer if the home button could also be use with a simple tap of the stylus. Maybe I'm missing something? Thanks!
