Aspose support PDF/A-2b conversion

Hi Support
I am using Aspose.Words version # 18.8 and I want to convert text document to PDF/A-2b format. Aspose does not provide pdf save option for PDF/A-2b. Please check the code snippet below.
Does Aspose support PDF/A-2b format conversion?

DocumentBuilder DocumentBuilder = new DocumentBuilder();
using (StreamReader Reader = new StreamReader(InputFileName, Encoding.UTF8))
    string LineText = string.Empty;
    while ((LineText = Reader.ReadLine()) != null)

Aspose.Words.Saving.PdfSaveOptions PdfSaveOptions = new Aspose.Words.Saving.PdfSaveOptions();
PdfSaveOptions.Compliance = Aspose.Words.Saving.PdfCompliance.PdfA1b;
PdfFormatConversionOptions pdfFormatConversionOptions = new PdfFormatConversionOptions(new MemoryStream(), PdfFormat.PDF_A_2B, ConvertErrorAction.Delete);
using (var CompressedFileStream = new FileStream(tempfile, FileMode.OpenOrCreate, FileAccess.ReadWrite, FileShare.None))
    DocumentBuilder.Document.Save(CompressedFileStream, PdfSaveOptions);
    CompressedFileStream.Seek(0, System.IO.SeekOrigin.Begin);
    OutputFileBytes = new byte[CompressedFileStream.Length];
    CompressedFileStream.Read(OutputFileBytes, 0, (int)CompressedFileStream.Length);
